Poem Title:  As I Have Seen Upon A Bridal Day

Poem Category:  Nature Poems

Poet:  William Browne Of Tavistock

Poet Biography: 
William Browne (1591-1643) was an English Poet. As his surname (and indeed his first name) is quite common he is also known by the place of birth. i.e. Tavistock, Devon

[The Birth of the River Tavis] as I have seen upon a bridal day Full many maids clad in their best array, In honour of the bride come with their flaskets Filled full with flowers: others in wicker baskets bring from the marish^ rushes to o'erspread The ground whereon to church the lovers tread; Whilst that the quaintest youth of all the plain Ushers their way with many a piping strain: So, as in joy at this fair river's* birth, Triton came up a channel with his mirth, and called the neighboring nymphs each in her turn to pour their pretty rivulets from their urn. To wait upon this new-delivered spring, Some running through the meadows, with them bring cowslip and mint; and 'tis another's lot To light upon some gardener's curious knot, whence she upon her breast, love's sweet repose, doth bring the queen of flowers, the english rose. Some from the fen bring reeds, wild thyme from downs; Some from a grove the bay that poets crowns; some from an aged rock the moss hath torn, And leaves him naked unto winter's storm; another from her banks, in mere goodwill, Brings nutriment for fish, the camomile. Thus all bring somewhat, and do overspread the way the spring unto the sea doth tread.
