s snatching Tapers up that on some Herce did stande Did light them, and before the Bride did beare them in their hande. The Furies made the Bridegroomes bed. And on the house did rucke A cursed Owle the messenger of yll successe and lucke. And all the night time while that they were lying in their beds, She sate upon the bedsteds top right over both their heds. Such handsell Progne had the day that Tereus did hir wed. Such handsell had they when that she was brought of childe abed. All Thracia did rejoyce at them, and thankt their Gods, and willd That both the day of Prognes match with Tereus should be hild For feastfull, and the day likewise that Itys first was borne: So little know we what behoves. The Sunne had now outworne Five Harvests, and by course five times had run his yearly race, When Progne flattring Tereus saide: If any love or grace Betweene us be, send eyther me my sister for to see, Or finde the meanes that hither she may come to visit mee. You may assure yo

hooked talants trussing up a Hare among the Ferne, Hath laid hir in his nest, from whence the prisoner can not scape, The ravening fowle with greedie eyes upon his pray doth gape. Now was their journey come to ende: now were they gone aland In Thracia, when that Tereus tooke the Ladie by the hand, And led hir to a pelting graunge that peakishly did stand In woods forgrowen. There waxing pale and trembling sore for feare, And dreading all things, and with teares demaunding sadly where Hir s she could not raunge. Againe hir tunglesse mouth did want the utterance of the fact. Great is the wit of pensivenesse, and when the head is rakt With hard misfortune, sharpe forecast of practise entereth in. A warpe of white upon a frame of Thracia she did pin, And weaved purple letters in betweene it, which bewraide The wicked deede of Tereus. And having done, she praide A certaine woman by hir signes to beare them to hir mistresse. She bare them and deliverde them not knowing neretheless

From thence in saffron colourd robe flew Hymen through the ayre, And into Thracia beeing called by Orphy did repayre. He came in deede at Orphyes call: but neyther did he sing The woordes of that solemnitie, nor merry countnance bring, Nor any handsell of good lucke. His torch with drizling smoke Was dim: the same to burne out cleere, no stirring could provoke. The end was woorser than the signe. For as the Bryde did rome Abrode accompanyde with a trayne of Nymphes to bring her home, A serpent lurking in the grasse did sting her in the ancle: Whereof shee dyde incontinent, so swift the bane did rancle. Whom when the Thracian Poet had bewayld sufficiently On earth, the Ghostes departed hence he minding for to trie, Downe at the gate of Taenarus did go to Limbo lake. And thence by gastly folk and soules late buried he did take His journey to Persephonee and to the king of Ghosts That like a Lordly tyran reignes in those unpleasant coasts. And playing on his tuned harp he th

most cursed things to speake I now commence. Yee daughters and yee parents all go get yee farre from hence. Or if yee mynded bee to heere my tale, beleeve mee nought In this beehalfe: ne think that such a thing was ever wrought. Or if yee will beeleeve the deede, beleeve the vengeance too Which lyghted on the partye that the wicked act did doo. But if that it be possible that any wyght so much From nature should degenerate, as for to fall to such A heynous cryme as this is, I am glad for Thracia, I Am glad for this same world of ours, yea glad exceedingly I am for this my native soyle, for that there is such space Betweene it and the land that bred a chyld so voyd of grace. I would the land Panchaya should of Amomie be rich, And Cinnamom, and Costus sweete, and Incence also which Dooth issue largely out of trees, and other flowers straunge, As long as that it beareth Myrrhe: not woorth it was the chaunge, Newe trees to have of such a pryce. The God of love denyes His weapons to h

Yit suffred not the destinyes all hope to perrish quyght Togither with the towne of Troy. That good and godly knyght The sonne of Venus bare away by nyght uppon his backe His aged father and his Goddes, an honorable packe. Of all the riches of the towne that only pray he chose, So godly was his mynd: and like a bannisht man he goes By water with his owne yoong sonne Ascanius from the Ile Antandros, and he shonnes the shore of Thracia which ere whyle The wicked Tyrants treason did with Polydores blood defyle. And having wynd and tyde at will, he saufly wyth his trayne Arryved at Apollos towne where Anius then did reigne. Whoo being both Apollos preest and of that place the king, Did enterteyne him in his house and unto church him bring, And shewd him bothe the Citie and the temples knowen of old, And eeke the sacred trees by which Latona once tooke hold When shee of chyldbirth travailed. As soone as sacrifyse Was doone with Oxens inwards burnt according to the guyse, And cast
