But mother, shee whose altred shape dooth move your hart so sore, Was neyther kith nor kin to you. What will you say therefore, If of myne owne deere suster I the woondrous fortune show, Although my sorrow and the teares that from myne eyes doo flow, Doo hinder mee, and stop my speeche? Her mother (you must know My father by another wyfe had mee) bare never mo But this same Ladie Dryopee, the fayrest Ladye tho In all the land of Oechalye. Whom beeing then no mayd (For why the God of Delos and of Delphos had her frayd) Andraemon taketh to hys wyfe, and thinkes him well apayd. There is a certaine leaning Lake whose bowing banks doo show A likenesse of the salt sea shore. Uppon the brim doo grow All round about it Mirtletrees. My suster thither goes Unwares what was her destinie, and (which you may suppose Was more to bee disdeyned at) the cause of comming there Was to the fayries of the Lake fresh garlonds for to beare.

Thus lakes and streames (as well perceyve yee may) Have divers powres and diversly. Even so the tyme hathe beene That Delos which stands stedfast now, on waves was floting seene. And Galyes have beene sore afrayd of frusshing by the Iles Symplegads which togither dasht uppon the sea erewhyles, But now doo stand unmovable ageinst bothe wynde and tyde. Mount Aetna with his burning Oovens of brimstone shall not byde Ay fyrye: neyther was it so for ever erst. For whither The earth a living creature bee, and that to breathe out hither And thither flame, great store of vents it have in sundry places, And that it have the powre to shift those vents in divers caces, Now damming theis, now opening those, in moving to and fro: Or that the whisking wynds restreynd within the earth bylowe, Doo beate the stones ageinst the stones, and other kynd of stuffe Of fyrye nature, which doo fall on fyre with every puffe: Assoone as those same wynds doo cease, the caves shall streight bee cold.
