Original text and translations
Crowned with flowres I saw faire Amarillis
by Thirsis sit, hard by a fount of Christall
And with her hand more white then snow or Lillies
On sand shee wrote, my faith shall be immortall
And sodainely a storme of winde and weather
Blew all her faith and sand away together.
