A Welcome

Written by: William Browne | Biography
 | Quotes (1) |
 WELCOME, welcome! do I sing,
Far more welcome than the spring;
He that parteth from you never
Shall enjoy a spring for ever.
He that to the voice is near Breaking from your iv'ry pale, Need not walk abroad to hear The delightful nightingale.
Welcome, welcome, then.
.
.
He that looks still on your eyes, Though the winter have begun To benumb our arteries, Shall not want the summer's sun.
Welcome, welcome, then.
.
.
He that still may see your cheeks, Where all rareness still reposes, Is a fool if e'er he seeks Other lilies, other roses.
Welcome, welcome, then.
.
.
He to whom your soft lip yields, And perceives your breath in kissing, All the odours of the fields Never, never shall be missing.
Welcome, welcome, then.
.
.
He that question would anew What fair Eden was of old, Let him rightly study you, And a brief of that behold.
Welcome, welcome, then.
