James and Mary Ford, eds.  Every Day in the Year.  1902.
 
March 25
On the Union
By Ben Jonson (1572–1637)
 
          The Union of Scotland and England by act of King James I of England and VI of Scotland, March 25, 1603.

WHEN was there contract better driven by Fate,
Or celebrated with more truth of state?
The world the temple was, the priest a king,
The spoused pair two realms, the sea the ring.
