POEMS BY THOMAS CAMPION
by: Thomas Campion (1567?-1619)
- Sing thou smoothly with thy beauty's
- Silent music, either other
- Sweetly gracing.
- Lovely forms do flow
- From concent divinely framèd:
- Heaven is music, and thy beauty's
- Birth is heavenly.
- These dull notes we sing
- Discords need for helps to grace them;
- Only beauty purely loving
- Knows no discord;
- But still moves delight,
- Like clear springs renew'd by flowing,
- Ever perfect, ever in them-
- selves eternal.
