John Wilbye (baptized 7 March 1574 – September 1638) was an English madrigal composer.
Ah! cruel Amarillis, since thou tak’st delight
To hear the accents of a doleful ditty,
To triumph still without remorse or pity;
I loathe this life,death must my sorrow right;
And lest vain hope my miseries renew,
‘Reave me of breath,
Ah! cruel Amarillis, adieu.
