after forth did bring According to their sundrie shapes eche other living thing, As soone as that the moysture once caught heate against the Sunne, And that the fat and slimie mud in moorish groundes begunne To swell through warmth of Phebus beames, and that the fruitfull seede Of things well cherisht in the fat and lively soyle in deede, As in their mothers wombe, began in length of time to grow, To one or other kinde of shape wherein themselves to show. Even so when that seven mouthed Nile the watrie fieldes forsooke, And to his auncient channel eft his bridled streames betooke, So that the Sunne did heate the mud, the which he left behinde, The husbandmen that tilde the ground, among the cloddes did finde Of sundrie creatures sundrie shapes: of which they spied some, Even in the instant of their birth but newly then begonne, And some unperfect, wanting brest or shoulders in such wise, That in one bodie oftentimes appeared to the eyes One halfe thereof alive to be

She gave the Giants all the praise, the honor and the oddes, Abasing sore the worthie deedes of all the Gods. She telles How Typhon issuing from the earth and from the deepest helles, Made all the Gods above afraide, so greatly that they fled And never staide till Aegypt land and Nile whose streame is shed In channels seven, received them forwearied all togither: And how the Helhound Typhon did pursue them also thither. By meanes wherof the Gods eche one were faine themselves to hide In forged shapes.
