Now peep, boe peep, thrise happie blest mine eies, For I haue found faire Phillis where she lies. Vpon her bed, with armes vnspred, all fast a sleepe, Vnmaskt her face, thrise happie grace, farewell my Sheepe, Looke to your selues, new charge I must approue, Phillis doth sleepe, and I must guard my Loue. 2 Now peep boe peep, mine eyes to see your blisse, Phillis closd eyes atrackts you, hers to kisse: Oh may I now performe my vow, loues ioy t'impart, Assay the while, how to be-guile, farewell faint hart. Taken she is, new ioyes I must approue, Phillis doth sleep, and I will kisse my Loue. 3 Now peep, boe peep, be not too bould my hand, Wake not thy Phillis, feare shee doe with-stand : Shee stirs alas, alas, alas I faunt in spright, Shee opes her eie, vnhappie I, farewell delight. Awakt shee is, new woes I must approue, Phillis awakes, and I must leaue my Loue.
