Our Harps.our Tabors and Crwths sweet humming—
For thee,my sweet Princess,make musical moans;
Our morris maid-marrians desire to see
A true Jove knot tied,between thee and me.
ISo pleasure in country by me can be seen,
That have been maintained so long" here a Queen,
And fed on the blessings that daily were given,
Into my brave palace,by angels from heaven.
Our green-leav'd trees will dance with the wind,
Where birds fit rejoicing according1 to kind;
Our sheep with our lambs will skip and rebound,
To see thee come tripping along on the ground.
What if*a kind Princess should so be content,
By meekness thus moved to give her consent,
And humble her honors,and base her degree,
To tye her best fortunes,brave Tudor, to thee."3
If to a Kingdom I born were by birth,
And had at commandment all nations on earth,|-cet,
Their crowns and their sceptres fhouldlyeat thy=-
And thou be my Emprefs,my darling so sweet.
i fear not to fancy thy love-tempting tongue, For Cupid is coming,his bow very strong; Queen Venus once mistress of heart-wishing plealu We over-kind women repent us at leisure.
May never fair morning shew forth his bright'^HTM5'
But cover my falshoods with greatest extremes,
If not astheTurtle I lye with my Dove,
My gentle kind Princess,my Lady, my love.
Hie then into Wales,and our wedding provide,
For thou art my bridegroom,and ill be thy bride,
Get gloves and fine ribbons, with bride-laces fair,
Of silk and of silver for ladies to wear.
With garlands of roscs,our house-wifely wives,
To have them adorned most lovingly strives;
Their bride-cakes be ready,ourPibgorns do play,
Whilst I stand attending to lead thee the way.
