A decorative border from Grosart

Tethys festivall from Grosart

Was ever hour brought more delight
        To mortal sight,
Than this, wherein fair Tethys deigns to show
        Her, and her Nymphs arow
        In glory bright?
See how they bring their flowers,
        From out their wat'ry bowers,
        To deck Apollo's Tree
        The tree of victory.
About whose verdant boughs
They Sacrifice their vows
        And wish an everlasting spring
Of glory, to the Ocean King.
