First Line: If antique swains wan such immortal praise
Last Line: That charm'st not them but men with thy sweet songs?
Subject(s): Browne, William (1591-1645)


IF antique swains wan such immortal praise,
Though they alone with their melodious lays
Did only charm the woods and flow'ry lawns,
Satyrs, and floods, and stones, and hairy fawns:
How much, brave youth, to thy due worth belongs,
That charm'st not them but men with thy sweet songs?
