by John Milton (1608 - 1674)
Translation

Haste thee, nymph, and bring with thee
Language: English  after the English 
Haste thee, nymph, and bring with thee
Jest, and youthful Jollity,
Quips, and cranks, and wanton wiles,
Nods, and becks, and wreathed smiles,
Young and old come forth to play
In a sunshine holyday.
