2. Fair Julia [sung text checked 1 time]

Fair Julia sitting by the fire,
an amorous spark,
with hot desire,
flew to her breast, 
but could not melt the chaste snow there,
And that resistance it did bide,
For grief it blushed and so, 
so it died.
Yet lest it should prove ought unkind,
It contrite ashes left, left behind.

5. My Love in her attire [sung text not yet checked]

My Love in her attire doth show her wit,
It doth so well become her:
For every season she hath dressings fit,
For winter, spring, and summer.

No beauty she doth miss
When all her robes are on:
But Beauty's self, Beauty's self she is
When all her robes are gone.
