The Description of a Maske
on S. Stephens night.

by Thomas Campion.

Song. Come a shore, come, merrie mates,
With your nimble heeles and pates :
Summon eu'ry man his Knight,
Enough honour's is this night.
Now, let your Sea-borne Goddesse come,
Quench these lights, and make all dombe.
Some sleepe ; others let her call :
And so Godnight to all, godnight to all.
