A SONG OF WELCOME TO KING CHARLES, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Fresh as the day, and new as are the hours
Last Line: And you, with them, as father of our spring.


Fresh as the day,and new as are the hours,
Our first of fruits, that is the prime of flowers
Bred by your breath, on this low bank of ours;
Now, in a garland by the graces knit:
Upon this obelisk, advanced for it,
We offer as a circle the most fit
To crown the years, which you begin, great king,
And you, with them, as father of our Spring.
