John Wilbye

Yet, sweet, take heed

John Wilbye (baptized 7 March 1574 – September 1638) was an English madrigal composer.






Yet, sweet, take heed, all sweets are hard to get;
Sting not her soft lips, Oh beware of that:
For if one flaming dart come from her eye,
Was never dart so sharp, ah, then you die!
