Best Poem of Edward Thurlow

   And fulfilling flowers,
With what pretty music
   Shall we charm the hours?

   Or pipe or wire;
Thou hast the golden bee
   Ripen'd with fire;
And many thousand more
Songsters, that thee adore,
Filling earth's grassy floor
   With new desire.

Thou hast thy mighty herds, ...
