Title: She straight her light green silken coats
Composer: Thomas Morley
Description: #3 from Morley's First Book of Ayres.
Second of two parts, first part is Thirsis and Milla.
Original text and translations
She straight her light green silken coats uptucked
And may for Mill, and thyme for Thyrsis plucked,
Which when she brought he clasp'd her by the middle,
And kiss'd her sweet,but could not read her riddle.
Ah, fool! With that the nymph set up a laughter
And blush'd and ran and ran away, and he ran after.
