  • 1To shorten Winter's sadness,
  • 2See where the nymphs with gladness, fa la,
  • 3Disguised all are coming
  • 4Right wantonly a-mumming. Fa la.
  • pg 2855Though masks encloud their beauty,
  • 6Yet give the eye her duty. Fa la.
  • 7When heaven is dark it shineth,
  • 8And unto love inclineth. Fa la.
