did draw him where they wolde. The Aethiopians at that time (as men for truth upholde) (The bloud by force of that same heate drawne to the outer part And there adust from that time forth) became so blacke and swart. The moysture was so dried up in Lybie land that time That altogither drie and scorcht continueth yet that Clyme. The Nymphes with haire about their eares bewayld their springs and lakes. Beotia for hir Dyrces losse great lamentation makes. For Amimone Argos wept, and Corinth for the spring Pyrene, at whose sacred streame the Muses usde to sing. The Rivers further from the place were not in better case, For Tanais in his deepest streame did boyle and steme apace, Old Penew and Caycus of the countrie Teuthranie, And swift Ismenos in their bankes by like misfortune frie. Then burnde the Psophian Erymanth: and (which should burne ageine) The Trojan Xanthus and Lycormas with his yellow veine, Meander playing in his bankes aye winding to and fro, Migdonian

And as she from the upper part hir garment would have rent, By chaunce she let hir lap slip downe, and out hir flowres went. And such a sillie simplenesse hir childish age yet beares, That even the verie losse of them did move hir more to teares. The Catcher drives his Chariot forth, and calling every horse By name, to make away apace he doth them still enforce: And shakes about their neckes and Manes their rustie bridle reynes And through the deepest of the Lake perforce he them constreynes. And through the Palik pooles, the which from broken ground doe boyle And smell of Brimstone verie ranke: and also by the soyle Where as the Bacchies, folke of Corinth with the double Seas, Betweene unequall Havons twaine did reere a towne for ease.
