Lyrics: John Glasse

Thyrsis, who feeds the virgin's fleecy train,
And well as Pan can tune the rural strain,
Tired with heat and overcome with wine,
Now sleeping lies beneath the lofty pine;
While heedless Cupid, on the desert rock,
Handles his crook and tends his bleating flock.
Fly, ye nymphs, and wake the shepherd's boy,
Lest the fierce wolves should tender love destroy.
