Here you will find the Poem Rose-Cheeked Laura of poet Thomas Campion

Rose-Cheeked Laura

Rose-cheek'd Laura, come,
 Sing thou smoothly with thy beauty's
 Silent music, either other
 Sweetly gracing.

 Lovely forms do flow
 From concent divinely framed;
 Heav'n is music, and thy beauty's
 Birth is heavenly.

 These dull notes we sing
 Discords need for helps to grace them;
 Only beauty purely loving
 Knows no discord,

 But still moves delight,
 Like clear springs renew'd by flowing,
 Ever perfect, ever in them-
 Selves eternal.
