The Description of a Maske
on S. Stephens night. (1614)
by Thomas Campion.
A song while the Squires descend with the bough
toward the Scene.
Goe, happy man, like
Whose beames to Bride-groomes
well-come are :
May neither Hagge nor feind
The powre of thy Victorious Hand.
Vncharm'd Knights surrender now,
vertue of thy raised Bough.
Away, Enchauntments, Vanish quite,
No more delay our longing sight :
' Tis fruitelesse to contend with
Who giues vs pow're against your
Knights, in Courtly pompe appeare
now are you long-look't for heere.
