Are you going to Scarborough Fair Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme Remember me to the one who lives there He once was a true love of mine
Tell him to make me a cambric shirt Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme Without a seam nor needlework Then he’ll be a true love of mine
Tell him to find me an acre of land Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme Between the salt water and the sea strand Then he’ll be a true love of mine
Love imposes impossible tasks Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme Though never more than your own dear heart asks And I must know, you’re a true love of mine
~ Traditional (circa 1670)
AMARILLI MIA BELLA
Amarilli, mia bella
Non credi, o del mio cor
D'esser tu l'amor mio?
Credilo pur, e se timor t'assale,
Prendi questo mio strale
Aprim’il petto e vedrai scritto in core:
Amarilli, Amarilli, Amarilli è 'l mio amore.
~ Giulio Caccini & Giovanni Battista Guarini (1601)
