"Beauty Bathing"
di Anthony Munday (1553-1633)

Beauty sat bathing by a spring,
Where fairest shades did hide her; The winds blew calm, the birds did sing,
The cool streams ran beside her. My wanton thoughts enticed mine eye
To see what was forbidden: But better memory said Fie;
So vain desire was chidden -

Hey nonny nonny O!

Hey nonny nonny!
Into a slumber then I fell,
And fond imagination Seemed to see, but could not tell,
Her feature or her fashion: But ev'n as babes in dreams do smile,
And sometimes fall a-weeping, So I awaked as wise that while
As when I fell a-sleeping.

Hey nonny nonny O!

Hey nonny nonny!
