IN A HERBER GREEN ASLEEP WHEREAS I LAY

In a herber green asleep whereas I lay,
The birds sang sweet in the midd{.e}s of the day;
I dreamed fast of mirth and play:
    In youth is pleasure, in youth is pleasure.

  Methought I walked still to and fro,
And from her company I could not go;
But when I wak'd it was not so:
    In youth is pleasure, in youth is pleasure.

    Therefore my heart is surely pight
Of her alone to have a sight,
Which is my joy and heart's delight:
    In youth is pleasure, in youth is pleasure.
