Englanda's Helicon, 1600
Change

Come live with me, and be my Love,
And we will all the pleasures prove,
That Valleys, grooves, hills and fields,
Woods, or steepy mountains yields.

There will we sit upon the Rocks
And see
the Shepherds feed their flocks,
By shallow Rivers, to whose falls,
Melodious birds sing Madrigals.

And I will; make thee beds of Roses
And a thousand fragrant posies,
A cap of flowers, and a kirtle,
Embroidered all with leaves of Myrtle.

A gown made of the finest wool,
Which from our pretty Lambs we pull,
Fair
lined slippers for the cold:
With buckles of the purest gold.

A belt of straw, and Ivy buds,
With Coral clasps and Amber studs,
And if these pleasures may thee move,
Come live with me
and be my Love.

The ShepherdsÕ Swains shall dance and sing,
For thy delight each May morning,
If these delights thy mind may move;
Then
live with me, and be my Love.
