THE LORDS' MASQUE: THE FIRST INVOCATION IN A FULL SONG, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Powerful jove, that of bright stars
Last Line: When words and music please, let none despair.


Powerful Jove, that of bright stars,
Now hast made men fit for wars,
Thy power in these statues prove
And make them women fit for love.
Orpheus. See, Jove is pleased; statues have life and move!
Go, new-born men, and entertain with love
The new-born women, though your number yet
Exceeds their's double, they are armed with wit
To bear your best encounters. Court them fair:
When words and music please, let none despair.
