of sundrie kindes:

Thomas Greaves



I. Shaded with Oliue trees.

     Shaded with Oliue trees sate Celestina singing,
     Then the warbling birdes more sweet harmony ringing,
     With curious cost that gold embost 
                    her fingers duelie placed,
     Whiles voice and hand both at command 
                    each other truely graced,
     Thus vsing time not loosing time 
                    right well apaide
     Shee closd her ditty with Oh tis pretty 
                    to liue a maide.
