Welcome, Maids of Honour,
You doe bring [do]
In the Spring;
And wait upon her.
She has virgins many,
Fresh and faire;
Yet you are
More sweet than any.
Y'are the maiden posies, [you are]
And so grac'd
To be plac'd
’Fore damask roses. [before]
Yet though thus respected,
By and by
Ye doe lie,
Poore girls, neglected.

Robert Herrick
