Lawn As White As Driven Snow
Lawn as white as driven snow.
Cypress black as e'er was crow;
Gloves as sweet as damask roses;
Mask for faces and for noses;
Perfume for a lady's chamber;
Golden quoifs and stomachers,
For my lads to give their dears;
Pins and peaking sticks of steel;
What maids lack from head to heel:
Come buy of me, come; come buy, come buy,
Buy, lads, or else your lasses cry:
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
Mirth And Play
Now's the time for mirth and play,
Saturday's an holiday;
Praise to heaven unceasing yeild,
I've found a lark's nest in the field.
A lark's nest, then your playmate begs
You'd spare herself and speckled eggs;
Soon she shall ascend and sing
Your praises to the eternal King.
