Words   When Daphne from fair Phoebus did fly, The west wind most sweetly did, blow in her face, Her silken scarf scarce shadowed her eyes, The, God cried, O pity! and held her in chace, Stay, Nymph, stay, Nymph,, cries Apollo, tarry and turn thee, Sweet Nymph, stay, Lion nor Tiger, doth thee follow, turn thy fair eyes, and look this way, O turn, O, pretty sweet, and let our red lips meet, O pity me, Daphne, pity me,, &c., --Chappell
