by Patrick Hannay (d. 1629?)

Whenas I wake, I dream oft of my dear
Language: English 
Whenas I wake, I dream oft of my dear, 
  And oft am serious with her in my sleep ; 
And am oft absent when I am most near, 
  And near whenas I greatest distance keep.
    These wonders love doth work, but yet I find 
    That love wants power to make my Mistress kind.
