Who is Sylvia?

Melody - Franz Schubert

Will Shakespeare

Who is Sylvia?
What is she?
That all our swains commend her?
Holy, fair,
And wise is she
The Heav'ns such grace did lend her
|: - That adored she might be. :|
  Is she kind as
She is fair?
For beauty lives with kindness;
To her eyes
Love doth repair
To help him of his blindness;
|: And being help'd in habits there. :|

Then to Sylvia
Let us sing,
That Sylvia is excelling;
She excells
Each mortal thing
Upon the dull Earth dwelling;
|: - To her garlands let us bring. :|
