If music and sweet poetry agree,
As they must needs (the sister and the brother),
Then must the love be great 'twixt thee and me,
Because thou lov'st the one, and I the other.

(Richard Barnfield (1574-1629), British poet. To His Friend Master R.L., in Praise of Music and Poetry (l. 1-4). . . Elizabethan Lyrics. Norman Ault, ed. (3d ed., 1949) William Sloane Associates.)
In the merry month of May,
Sitting in a pleasant shade,
Which a grove of myrtles made,
Beasts did leap, and birds did sing,
Trees did grow, and plants did spring:
Every thing did banish moan,
Save the Nightingale alone.
