Fair Oriana, beauty's Queen
Language: English 
Fair Oriana, beauty's queen
Tripped along the verdant green,
The Fauns and Satyrs, running out,
skipped and danced round about:
Flora forsook her painted bowers
and made a Coronet of flowers.
Then sang the Nymphs of chaste Diana,
Long Live Fair Oriana.
