A Booke of Ayres


XIX. Surchargd with discontent

         Surchargd with discontent,
         To Siluanes boure I went,
      To ease my heuy grief oppressed hart,
      And trie what comfort winged creatures,
      Coulde yeelde vnto my inwarde troubled smarte
      By modulating thier delightfull measures.
         To my eares pleasing euer,
      Of straines so sweet, sweet birdes depriue vs neuer.
