TO you light troupe that ryde
On movynge wings and glyde
Above the world and slake it,
And with your murmur soft
Move the green shade and oft
With gentle tremors shake it—

For you I violets cull,
And flowers beautiful,
These roses and these lilies,—
These roses all soe red
And newly openéd,
These pinks and daffodillies.

Nowe with your gentle breath
Breathe onthe plaine beneath,
And lightly fan this meadowe,
Whyle I doe sweat and straine
At threshynge of my graine,
And noon is without shadowe.
