1 Farewell too fair
2 Time stands still
3 Behold a wonder here
4 Daphne was not so chaste as she was changing
5 Me, me and none but me
6 When Phœbus first did Daphne love
7 Say love if ever thou didst find
8 Flow not so fast ye fountains
9 What if I never speed
10 Love stood amazed at sweet beauty's pain
11 Lend your ears to my sorrow good people
12 By a fountain where I lay
13 Oh what hath overwrought my all amazed thought
14 Farewell unkind farewell
15 Weep you no more sad fountains
16 Fie on this faining, is love without desire
17 I must complain, yet do enjoy
18 It was a time when silly Bees could speak
19 The lowest trees have tops
20 What poor astronomers are they
21 Come when I call, or tarry till I come
