Hark, hear you not a heav'nly harmony?
Is't Jove, think you, that plays upon the Spheres?
Heav'ns, is not this heav'nly melody?
Where Jove himself a part in music bears.
Now comes in a choir of nightengales.
Mark how the Nymphs and shepherds of the dales,
how all do join together in the praise
of Orianae's life and happy days.
Then sing ye shepherds and Nymphs of Diana,
in heav'n lives Oriana.
