alke of this and that, and now and than among He playd upon his merrie Pipe to cause his watching eyes To fall asleepe. Poore Argus did the best he could devise To overcome the pleasant nappes: and though that some did sleepe, Yet of his eyes the greater part he made their watch to keepe. And after other talke he askt (for lately was it founde) Who was the founder of that Pype that did so sweetely sounde. Then sayde the God: There dwelt sometime a Nymph of noble fame Among the hilles of Arcadie, that Syrinx had to name. Of all the Nymphes of Nonacris and Fairie farre and neere, In beautie and in personage thys Ladie had no peere. Full often had she given the slippe both to the Satyrs quicke And other Gods that dwell in Woods, and in the Forrests thicke, Or in the fruitfull fieldes abrode: It was hir whole desire To follow chaste Dianas guise in Maydenhead and attire, Whome she did counterfaite so nighe, that such as did hir see Might at a blush have taken hir Di

And Jove almighty went about the walles of heaven to trie If ought were perisht with the fire, which when he did espie Continuing in their former state, all strong and safe and sound, He went to vew the workes of men, and things upon the ground. Yet for his land of Arcadie he tooke most care and charge. The Springs and streames that durst not run he set againe at large. He clad the earth with grasse, the trees with leaves both fresh and greene Commaunding woods to spring againe that erst had burned bene. Now as he often went and came it was his chaunce to light Upon a Nymph of Nonacris whose forme and beautie bright Did set his heart on flaming fire. She used not to spinne Nor yet to curle hir frisled haire with bodkin or with pinne. A garment with a buckled belt fast girded did she weare And in a white and slender Call slight trussed was hir heare. Sometimes a dart sometime a bow she used for to beare. She was a knight of Phebes troope. There came not at the mount Of Menalus of

w, Than was the Prince Meleager. He was the first that saw, And first that shewed to his Mates the blud that she did draw: And said: For this thy valiant act due honor shalt thou have. The men did blush, and chearing up ech other courage gave With shouting, and disorderly their Darts by heaps they threw. The number of them hindred them, not suffring to ensew That any lighted on the marke at which they all did ame. Behold, enragde against his ende the hardie Knight that came From Arcadie, rusht rashly with a Pollax in his fist And said: You yonglings learne of me what difference is betwist A wenches weapons and a mans: and all of you give place To my redoubted force. For though Diana in this chase Should with hir owne shield him defend, yet should this hand of mine Even maugre Dame Dianas heart confound this orped Swine. Such boasting words as these through pride presumptuously he crakes: And streyning out himselfe upon his tiptoes streight he takes His Pollax up with both

you the hands that by the homes the Bull of Candie drew? Did you king Augies stable clenze whom afterward yee slew? Are you the same by whom the fowles were scaard from Stymphaly? Caught you the Stag in Maydenwood which did not runne but fly? Are you the hands whose puissance receyved for your pay The golden belt of Thermodon? Did you convey away The Apples from the Dragon fell that waked nyght and day? Ageinst the force of mee, defence the Centaures could not make, Nor yit the Boare of Arcadie: nor yit the ougly Snake Of Lerna, who by losse did grow and dooble force still take. What? is it I that did behold the pampyred Jades of Thrace With Maungers full of flesh of men on which they fed apace? Ist I that downe at syght thereof theyr greazy Maungers threw, And bothe the fatted Jades themselves and eke their mayster slew? The Nemean Lyon by theis armes lyes dead uppon the ground. Theis armes the monstruous Giant Cake by Tyber did confound. Uppon theis shoulders have I borne the
