by William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)

To shallow rivers, to whose falls
Language: English 
To shallow rivers, to whose falls
Melodious birds sings madrigals;
There will we make our peds of roses,
And a thousand fragrant posies.

Melodious birds sing madrigals --
When as I sat in Pabylon --
And a thousand vagram posies.
To shallow &c.
