Songs and Sonnets from Tottel's Miscellany

"The sun hath twice brought forth his tender green"
"The soote season, that bud and bloom forth brings"
"When youth had led me half the race"
"Such wayward ways hath Love"
"When Summer took in hand the winter to assail"
"Love, that liveth and reigneth in my thought"
"In Cyprus springs, whereas Dame Venus dwelt"
"From Tuscane came my Lady's worthy race"
"Brittle beauty, that Nature made so frail"
"Alas! so all things now do hold their peace!"
"When Windsor walls sustain'd my wearied arm"
"Set me whereas the sun doth parch the green"
"I never saw my Lady lay apart"
"The golden gift that Nature did thee give"
"So cruel prison how could betide, alas"
"When raging love with extreme pain"
"O happy dames that may embrace"
"In winter's just return, when Boreas gan his reign"
"Good ladies !  ye that have your pleasure in exile"
"Give place, ye lovers, here before"
"If he that erst the form so lively drew"
"Although I had a check, To give the mate is hard"
"Too dearly had I bought my green and youthful years"
"O Loathsome place!"
"As oft as I behold, and see"
"Though I regarded not"
"Wrapt in my careless cloak, as I walk to and fro"
"Girt in my guiltless gown, as I sit here and sow
"Since fortune's wrath envieth the wealth"
"Each beast can choose his fere according to his mind"
"Martial, the things that do attain"
 Of the Death of Sir Thomas Wyatt - "Divers thy death do diversely bemoan"
 Of the Same - "Wyatt resteth here"
"Norfolk sprung thee, Lambeth holds thee dead"
"Th' Assyrian king, in peace, with foul desire"
"Laid in my quiet bed, in study as I were"
"The fancy which that I have served long"
"London, hast thou accused me"
