Original text and translations
Ah silly Soule, how are thy thoughts confounded
betwixt two loves, that far unlikely are?
Lustes love is blinde, and by no reason bounded.
Heavens love is cleere, and faire beyond compare.
No wonder, though this love light not thy minde,
whilst looking through false love thine eyes are blinde.
