English Poetry. Robert Herrick. The Maypole. Роберт Геррик (Херрик).






Robert Herrick (Роберт Геррик (Херрик))

The Maypole

The May-pole is up,
Now give me the cup;
I'll drink to the garlands around it;
But first unto those
Whose hands did compose
The glory of flowers that crown'd it.

A health to my girls,
Whose husbands may earls
Or lords be, granting my wishes,
And when that ye wed
To the bridal bed,
Then multiply all, like to fishes.
