Title: You pretty flowers
Composer: John Farmer
Original text and translations
You pretty flowers that smile for summer's sake,
pull in your heads before my wat'ry eyes
do turn the meadows to a standing lake,
by whose untimely floods your glory dies,
for lo, my heart resolved to moist'ning air,
feeding mine eyes, redoubles tear for tear.
