You gentle nymphs
Language: English 
You gentle nymphs that on the meadows play, 
and oft relate the love of shepherds young; 
Come, sit you down, for if you please to stay, 
now you may hear an uncouth passion sung.
A youth there is, and I am that poor groom 
that's fall'n in love, and cannot tell with whom.
