No. For earliest text and notes see H. E. Rollins' edition of 'A Handfull of Pleasant Delights'. This was a Dover reprint, but I don't know if it's still available. It is a forsaken lovers complaint to the lady that forsook him, and it gets pretty dreary if you go much beyond the 3 verses usually printed.
