I am just watching the new Channel Four imported drama "New Worlds" and the following poem / song has been recited / sung and would like to know if it is a genuine 17th century poem / song or a modern day inspiration?
Fill the bowl with rosy wine, rosy wine. And round our temples roses twine. And let us cheerfully awhile, like the wine and roses smile! Today is ours, what do we fear? Today is ours, we have it here!
