Here is the original Ode to Cynthia:
Ben Jonson. 1573-1637
Hymn to Diana (Ode to Cynthia)QUEEN and huntress, chaste and fair,
Now the sun is laid to sleep,
Seated in thy silver chair,
State in wonted manner keep:
Hesperus entreats thy light,
Goddess excellently bright.
Earth, let not thy envious shade
Lay thy bow of pearl apart,
