'Welcome, Welcome 1' was first published about sixty years ago by Sir Egerton Brydges, who had obtained the verses from a manuscript copy in the Lansdowne Collection. 1 The Syren's Song' forms the opening of a masque presented in 1614. The Syren's Song Steer, hither steer your winged pines, All beaten Mariners Here lie Love's undiscover'd mines A prey to passengers; Perfumes far sweeter than the best Which make the Phoenix' urn and nest: Fear not your ships, Nor any to oppose you save our lips; But come on shore, Where no joy dies till love hath gotten more For swelling waves our panting breasts, Where never storms arise, Exchange, and be awhile our guests For stars gaze on our eyes The compass Love shall hourly sing; And as he goes about the ring We will not miss To tell each point he nameth, with a kiss. Then come on shore, Where no joy dies till love hath gotten more Welcome, Welcome Welcome, welcome, do I sing, Far more welcome than the spring; He that parteth from you never, Shall enjoy a spring for ever. Love that to the voice is near, Breaking from your ivory pale, Need not walk abroad to hear The delightful nightingale. Welcome, welcome, then I sing, Far more welcome than the spring; He that parteth from you never, Shall enjoy a spring for ever. uauiiam Browne Love, that looks still on your eyes, Though the winter have begun To benumb our arteries, Shall not want the summer's sun. Welcome, welcome, then I sing. Love, that still may see your cheeks, Where all rareness still reposes, Is a fool, if e'er he seeks Other lilies, other roses. Welcome, welcome, then I sing. Love, to whom your soft lip yields, And perceives your breath in kissing, All the odours of the fields Never, never, shall be missing. Welcome, welcome, then I sing. Love...
