When first I saw that shining face,
My heart was filled with love so fine,
In Spring so fair and full of grace,
Oh mistress sweet you must be mine.

But now that autumn cometh nigh,
And our hearts seasons now do change.
So winters cold will on us fly,
No more shall we on pleasures range.

Yet love like time's a changing thing
For after winter cometh spring.
