He was universally belov'd, Hospitable, Generous, Learned in many things, skill'd in Musick, a very greate Cherisher of Learned men of whom he had the conversation.
When thou dost shine, darkness looks white and fair, Forms turn to Musick, clouds to smiles and air; Rain gently spends his honey-drops, and pours Balm on the cleft earth, milk on grass and flowers. Bright pledge of peace and sun-shine! the sure tye Of thy Lord's hand, the object of his eye. When I behold thee, though my light be dim, Distant, and low, I can in thine see Him Who looks upon thee from his glorious throne, And mindes the covenant 'twixt all and One.Henry Vaughan
Sundaies observe: think when the bells do chime, 'Tis angel's Musick; therefore come not late.George Herbert
Hear how the birds, on ev'ry blooming spray, With joyous Musick wake the dawning day!Alexander Pope
