Original text and translations
Now flowres your odours breath
and all the ayre perfume,
grow in this honor’d wreath
and with no stormes consume.
Hayle and welcome her
Thou glory of our greene,
receive this flowrie spheare
and bee the Shepheards Queene.
Kneel and doe her homage now
that cals our hearts lake fate,
now rise your humble bosomes bow,
O bow and lead her to her state.
