When lovely Regina doth move

Poem (Canso): 

When lovely Regina doth move,
Dancing as angels high above,
And begin she to softly sing
With voice far clearer than bell’s ring,
Then sudden doth the world grow still
To hear of beauty’s song its fill. 

And we, who unfit are to know
The warmth of her beautiful glow,
Well honor’d are we all the more
To have received her kind favor.
We’ll think on’t when her reign hath past,
This bliss will in memory last.
