William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
A Round
By Francis Beaumont (1584–1616)
 
SHAKE 1 off your heavy trance!
  And leap into a dance
Such as no mortal use to tread;
  Fit only for Apollo
To play to, for the moon to lead,        5
  And all the stars to follow!
 
Note 1. From The Masque of the Inner Temple, performed February, 1612–13, in honour of the marriage of the Count Palatine with the Princess Elizabeth. [back]
