A British folk-song arrangement, by Patrick Hawes, of Drink To Me Only With Thine Eyes by Ben Jonson.

Duration: c. 4 minutes.

Drink to me only with thine eyes,And I will pledge with mine;Or leave a kiss but in the cup,And I'll not ask for wine.The thirst that from the soul doth rise,Doth ask a drink divine;But might I of Jove's nectar sup,I would not change for thine.

I sent thee late a rosy wreath,Not so much honouring theeAs giving it a hope that thereIt could not withered be;But thou thereon didst only breatheAnd sent'st it back to me;Since when it grows and smells, I swear,Not of itself but thee.
