SONG, FR. THE TWO GENTELEM OF VERONA, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Who is silvia [or, sylvia]? What is she
Last Line: To her let us garlands bring.
Subject(s): Love


Who is Silvia? What is she,
That all our swains commend her?
Holy, fair, and wise is she;
The heaven such grace did lend her,
That she might admired be.

Is she kind as she is fair?
For beauty lives with kindness.
Love doth to her eyes repair,
To help him of his blindness,
And, being helped, inhabits there.

Then to Silvia let us sing,
That Silvia is excelling.
She excels each mortal thing
Upon the dull earth dwelling;
To her let us garlands bring.
