Poem 3

by
 BRing with you all the Nymphes that you can heare
both of the riuers and the forrests greene:
And of the sea that neighbours to her neare,
Al with gay girlands goodly wel beseene.
And let them also with them bring in hand, Another gay girland For my fayre loue of lillyes and of roses, Bound trueloue wize with a blew silke riband.
And let them make great store of bridale poses, And let them eeke bring store of other flowers To deck the bridale bowers.
And let the ground whereas her foot shall tread, For feare the stones her tender foot should wrong Be strewed with fragrant flowers all along, And diapred lyke the discolored mead.
Which done, doe at her chamber dore awayt, For she will waken strayt, The while doe ye this song vnto her sing, The woods shall to you answer and your Eccho ring.
