rom the slivers went Red drops of bloud as from a wound. The daughter that was rent Cride: Spare us mother spare I pray, for in the shape of tree The bodies and the flesh of us your daughters wounded bee. And now farewell. That word once said, the barke grew over all. Now from these trees flow gummy teares that Amber men doe call, Which hardened with the heate of sunne as from the boughs they fal The trickling River doth receyve, and sendes as things of price To decke the daintie Dames of Rome and make them fine and nice. Now present at this monstruous hap was Cygnus, Stenels son, Who being by the mothers side akinne to Phaeton Was in condicion more akinne. He leaving up his charge (For in the land of Ligurie his Kingdome stretched large) Went mourning all along the bankes and pleasant streame of Po Among the trees encreased by the sisters late ago. Annon his voyce became more small and shrill than for a man. Gray fethers muffled in his face: his necke in length began Fa

Men say that Numa furnisshed with such philosophye As this and like, returned to his native soyle, and by Entreatance was content of Rome to take the sovereintye. Ryght happy in his wyfe which was a nymph, ryght happy in His guydes which were the Muses nyne, this Numa did begin To teach Religion, by the meanes whereof hee shortly drew That people unto peace whoo erst of nought but battell knew. And when through age he ended had his reigne and eeke his lyfe, Through Latium he was moorned for of man and chyld and wyfe As well of hygh as low degree. His wyfe forsaking quyght The Citie, in vale Aricine did hyde her out of syght, Among the thickest groves, and there with syghes and playnts did let The sacrifyse of Diane whom Orestes erst had fet From Taurica in Chersonese, and in that place had set. How oft ah did the woodnymphes and the waternymphes perswade Egeria for to cease her mone. What meanes of comfort made They. Ah how often Theseus sonne her weeping thus bespake. O Ny

Abridge delay: and make thou haste to enter at the gates Which tarrye open for theeoddes Sayd: Heere is one that shall (onlesse yee bannish him your townc Immediatly) bee king of Rome and weare a royall crowne. What man it is, I will by signe, but not by name bewray. He hath uppon his brow two homes. The wizard heere dooth say, That if he enter Rome, you shall lyke servants him obey. He myght have entred at your gates which open for him lay, But I did stay him thence.

Yee Muses whoo to Poets are the present springs of grace, Now shewe (for you knowe, neyther are you dulld by tyme or space) How Aesculapius in the Ile that is in Tyber deepe Among the sacred sayncts of Rome had fortune for to creepe. A cruell plage did heertofore infect the Latian aire, And peoples bodyes pyning pale the murreine did appayre. When tyred with the buriall of theyr freends, they did perceyve Themselves no helpe at mannes hand nor by Phisicke to receyve. Then seeking help from heaven, they sent to Delphos (which dooth stand Amid the world) for counsell to bee had at Phebus hand. Beseeching him with helthfull ayd to succour theyr distresse, And of the myghtye Citie Rome the mischeef to redresse. The quivers which Apollo bryght himself was woont to beare, The Baytrees, and the place itself togither shaken were. And by and by the table from the furthest part of all The Chauncell spake theis woords, which did theyr harts with feare appal: The thing yee Romanes

And with his crackling scales did in the sand a furrowe cut, And taking hold uppon the sterne did in the Galy put His head, and rested till he came past Camp and Lavine sands, And entred Tybers mouth at which the Citie Ostia stands. The folke of Rome came hither all by heapes bothe men and wyves And eeke the Nunnes that keepe the fyre of Vesta as theyr lyves, To meete the God, and welcomd him with joyfull noyse. And as The Gally rowed up the streame, greate store of incence was On altars burnt on bothe the banks, so that on eyther syde The fuming of the frankincence the very aire did hyde, And also slaine in sacrifyse full many cattell dyde. Anon he came to Rome, the head of all the world: and there The serpent lifting up himself, began his head to beare Ryght up along the maast, uppon the toppe whereof on hye He looked round about, a meete abyding place to spye. The Tyber dooth devyde itself in twaine, and dooth embrace A little pretye Iland (so the people terme the place) From

For are they things more hard: to overcomme thy Realme Of Britaine standing in the sea, or up the sevenfold streame Of Nyle that beareth Paperreede victorious shippes to rowe, Or to rebelliouse Numidye to give an overthrowe, Or Juba, king of Moores, and Pons (which proudely did it beare Uppon the name of Mythridate) to force by swoord and speare To yeeld them subjects unto Rome, or by his just desert To merit many triumphes, and of sum to have his part, Than such an heyre to leave beehynd, in whom the Goddes doo showe Exceeding favour unto men for that they doo bestowe So great a prince uppon the world? Now to th'entent that hee Should not bee borne of mortall seede, the other was too bee Canonyzde for a God.
