Fair Phyllis
English source: Anon.

Fair Phyllis I saw sitting all alone
Feeding her flock near to the mountain side.
The shepherds knew not,
they knew not whither she was gone,
But after her lover Amyntas hied,
Up and down he wandered
whilst she was missing;
When he found her,
O then they fell a-kissing.

John Farmer (c. 1570 - c. 1601) was a composer of the English Madrigal School.
