Song: ‘O’er the smooth enameld green’
By John Milton (1608–1674)
From ‘Arcades

O’ER the smooth enameld green
Where no print of step hath been,
  Follow me as I sing,
    And touch the warbled string.
Under the shady roof        5
Of branching Elm Star-proof,
  Follow me,
I will bring you where she sits
Clad in splendour as befits
  Her diety.        10
Such a rural Queen
All Arcadia hath not seen.
