Holmes' contribution to Thomas Morley's collection, "The triumphs of Oriana".

Lyrics: Anon

Thus Bonnyboots the birthday celebrated
Of her, his lady dearest,
Fair Oriana, which to his heart was nearest:
The nymphs and shepherds feasted
with clotted cream were,
And to sing were requested.
Lo here the fair created (quoth he),
The world's chief goddess;
Sing then, for she is Bonnyboots' sweet mistress.
Then sang the shepherds and nymphs of Diana:
Long live fair Oriana.

John Holmes
(? - 1629)

Thus Bonnyboots the birthday celebrated

(S.S.A.T.B. (or A.A.T.T.B.) )
