Two Bookes of Ayres:
The Second Booke.

IIII.
by Thomas Campion.

O what vnhop't for sweet supply !
     O what ioyes exceeding !
What an affecting charme feele I,
     From delight proceeding !
That which I long despair'd to be,
     To her I am, and shee to mee.

Shee that alone in cloudy griefe
     Long to mee appeared,
Shee now alone with bright reliefe
     All those clouds hath cleared.                                      10
Both are immortall and diuine :
      Since I am hers, and she is mine.
