Excerpt
Excerpt: GOLDEN slumbers kiss your eyes, // Smiles awake you when you rise. // Sleep pretty wantons, do not cry, // And I will sing a lullaby; // Rock them, rock them, lullaby. // Care is heavy, therefore sleep you; // You are care, and care must keep you. // Sleep pretty wantons, do not cry, // And I will sing a lullaby; // Rock them, rock them, lullaby. // Thomas Dekker // O, the Month of May // O, The month of May, the merry month of May, // So frolic, so gay, and so green, so green, so green! // O, and then did I unto my true love say, // Sweet Peg, thou shalt be my Summer's Queen. // Now the nightingale, the pretty nightingale, // The sweetest singer in all the forest choir, // Entreats thee, sweet Peggy, to hear thy true love's tale: // Lo, yonder she sitteth; her breast against a brier. // But O, I spy the cuckoo, the cuckoo, the cuckoo; // See where she sitteth; come away, my joy: // Come away, I prithee, I do not like the cuckoo // Should sing where my Peggy and I kiss and toy. // O, the month of May, the merry month of May, // So frolic, so gay, and so green, so green, so green; // And then did I unto my true love say, // Sweet Peg, thou shalt be my Summer's Queen. // Thomas Dekker // Haymakers, Rakers, Reapers, and Mowers // HAYMAKERS, rakers, reapers, and mowers, // Wait upon your summer queen. // Dress up with musk-rose her eglantine bowers, // Daffodils strew the green.
