The Description of a Maske
on S. Stephens night.

by Thomas Campion.

Eternitie singes alone.

Bring away this Sacred Tree,
The Tree of Grace and Bountie,
              Set it in Bel-Annas eye,
For she, she, only she
              Can all Knotted spels vnty.
Pull'd from the Stocke, let her blest Hands conuay
              To any suppliant Hand, a bough,
              And let that Hand aduance it now
Against a Charme, that Charme shall fade away.
