But Phaeton (fire yet blasing stil among his yellow haire) Shot headlong downe, and glid along the Region of the Ayre Like to a starre in Winter nights (the wether cleare and fayre) Which though it doe not fall in deede, yet falleth to our sight, Whome almost in another world and from his countrie quite The River Padus did receyve, and quencht his burning head. The water Nymphes of Italie did take his carkasse dead And buried it yet smoking still, with Joves threeforked flame, And wrate this Epitaph in the stone that lay upon the same: Here lies the lusty Phaeton which tooke in hand to guide His fathers Chariot, from the which although he chaunst to slide: Yet that he gave a proud attempt it cannot be denide.

From that place He cutting through the Tyrrhene sea with both his armes apace, Arryved at the grassye hilles and at the Palace hye Of Circe, Phoebus imp, which full of sundry beastes did lye. When Glaucus in her presence came, and had her greeted, and Receyved freendly welcomming and greeting at her hand, He sayd: O Goddesse, pitie mee a God, I thee desyre.

There The Tyrian Queene (whoo afterward unpaciently should beare The going of this Trojane prince away) did enterteine Aenaeas in her house, and was ryght glad of him and fayne. Uppon a Pyle made underneathe pretence of sacrifyse Shee goard herself upon a swoord, and in most wofull wyse As shee herself had beene beguyld: so shee beguyled all.

There reignd erewhyle in Italy one Picus, Saturnes sonne, Whoo loved warlike horse and had delyght to see them ronne. He was of feature as yee see. And by this image heere The verry beawtye of the man dooth lyvelely appeere. His courage matcht his personage. And scarcely had he well Seene twentye yeeres. His countnance did allure the nymphes that dwell Among the Latian hilles. The nymphes of fountaines and of brookes, As those that haunted Albula were ravisht with his lookes And so were they that Numicke beares, and Anio too, and Alme That ronneth short, and heady Nar, and Farfar coole and calme. And all the nymphes that usde to haunt Dianas shadye poole, Or any lakes or meeres neere hand, or other waters coole.

Men say that Sicill also hath beene joynd to Italy Untill the sea consumde the bounds beetweene, and did supply The roome with water. If yee go to seeke for Helicee And Burye which were Cities of Achaia, you shall see Them hidden under water, and the shipmen yit doo showe The walles and steeples of the townes drownd under as they rowe.

And passing foorth by Junos Church that mustreth to the eye Uppon the head of Lacine he was caryed also by The rocke of Scylley. Then he left the land of Calabrye And rowing softly by the rocke Zephyrion, he did draw To Celen cliffs the which uppon the ryght syde have a flawe. By Romeche and by Cawlon, and by Narice thence he past, And from the streyghtes of Sicily gate quyght and cleere at last. Then ran he by th'Aeolian Iles and by the metall myne Of Tempsa, and by Lewco
