Helen Gardner (ed.), John Donne: The Elegies and The Songs and Sonnets
Song. Printed in John Dowland's A Pilgrim's Solace, 1612, as the first stanza of a poem in two stanzas, and alone in Orlando Gibbons, Madrigals and Motets, 1612. It was printed as the first stanza of 'Break of Day' (p. 35) in 1669. It appears similarly placed in S 96, and in A 25 it is written in the margin against 'Break of Day' with a mark to show it should be the first stanza.
