Fair Orian in the morn
Fair Orian, in the morn, before the day was born, With velvet steps on ground, which made nor print nor sound, Would see her Nymphs a-bed, what lives those Ladies led. The roses blushing said, O stay thou Shepherd's maid, and on a sodain all, they rose and heard her call. Then sang those Shepherds and Nymphs of Diana: Long live fair Oriana.
