ENTERTAINMENT GIVEN BY LORD KNOWLES: SONG BY THE GARDNER'S BOY AND MAN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Welcome to this flowery place
Last Line: Spring out of the silly briar.


1.

Welcome to this flowery place,
Fair Goddess and sole Queen of grace:
All eyes triumph in your sight,
Which through all this empty space
Casts such glorious beams of light.

2.

Paradise were meeter far
To entertain so bright a star:
But why errs my folly so?
Paradise is where you are:
Heaven above, and heaven below.

3.

Could our powers and wishes meet,
How well would they your graces greet!
Yet accept of our desire:
Roses, of all flowers most sweet,
Spring out of the silly briar.
