Flora gave me fairest flowers
English source: Anon.

Flora gave me fairest flowers,
None so fair in Flora’s treasure.
These I placed on Phyllis’ bowers,
She was pleased, and she my pleasure.
Smiling meadows seem to say:
Come, ye wantons, here to play.


John Wilbye

John Wilbye was an English madrigal composer.
