Orpheus with his lute made trees
And the mountain tops that freeze
--Bow themselves when he did sing:
To his music plants and flowers
Ever sprung; as sun and showers
--There had made a lasting spring.
Orpheus With His Lute

_______________________________________________Every thing that heard him play,
Even the billows of the sea,
--Hung their heads and then lay by.
In sweet music is such art, 10
--Killing care and grief of heart
--Fall asleep, or hearing, die.
