Original text and translations
My Mistris is as faire as fine,
milk-white fingers, Cherry nose,
like twinkling day-starres looks her eyne,
lightning all things where she goes,
Faire as Phœebe though not so sickle:
smooth as glasse though not so brickle.
My heart is like a Ball of Snowe,
melting at her luke-warme sight:
Her fiery Lips like Night-worms glowe
shining cleere as Candle-light.
Neat she is, no Feather lighter:
Bright she is, no Dazie whiter.
