by Thomas Flatman (1637 - 1688)

Welcome as soft refreshing show'rs
Language: English 
Welcome as soft refreshing show'rs,
That raise the sickly heads of drooping flow'rs,
Welcome as early beams of light
To the benighted traveller,
When he descries bright Phosphorus from afar,
And all his fears are put to flight.

Welcome home.
