The Description of a Maske
on S. Stephens night. (1614)
by Thomas Campion.
Eternitie singes alone.
Bring away this Sacred Tree,
The Tree of Grace and Bountie,
it in Bel-Annas eye,
For she, she, only she
all Knotted spels vnty.
Pull'd from the Stocke, let her blest Hands conuay
any suppliant Hand, a bough,
let that Hand aduance it now
Against a Charme, that Charme shall fade away.
