ENTERTAINMENT GIVEN BY LORD KNOWLES: SONG 1, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Dance now and sing; the joy and love we owe
Last Line: For she is all divine.


Dance now and sing; the joy and love we owe
Let cheerful voices and glad gestures show:
The Queen of grace is she whom we receive:
Honour and state are her guides,
Her presence they can never leave.
Then in a stately sylvan form salute
Her ever-flowing grace;
Fill all the woods with echoed welcomes,
And strew with flowers this place;
Let every bough and plant fresh blossoms yield,
And all the air refine:
Let pleasure strive to please our goddess,
For she is all divine.
