To a Lover

Sweet lover lay down in field fallow
Sweet woman recline in my arms
My shelter cool under shadow
And love will suppress your alarms
Sweet lover lay down in embrace
And forsake no moment therein
Tell no one of our secret place
As sky and horizon grow thin
Sweet lover lay down in my tears
And make me to see no more weeping
Whisper way all my fears
And pray for me as I lay sleeping.
Sweet lover lay down in my love
And return my affections in time
Be nobody else’s true love
As you will be no one’s but mine.
