Love is a sickness full of woes

author of text

The words of Love is a sickness full of woes (1921) are by Samuel Daniel (1562/3-1619), a poet, translater and writer of tragedies and masques who did service at the court of Queen Anne. Ireland's music has the whiff of an Elizabethan feel to it and imaginatively offsets the basically straightforward rhythmic pattern of the poem, which lightly muses on the pains associated with love.
