As when the Tyrrhene Tilman sawe in earing of his land The fatall clod first stirre alone without the help of hand, And by and by forgoing quyght the earthly shape of clod, To take the seemely shape of man, and shortly like a God To tell of things as then to comme. The Tyrrhenes did him call By name of Tages. He did teach the Tuskanes first of all To gesse by searching bulks of beastes what after should befall. Or like as did king Romulus when soodeinly he found His lawnce on mountayne Palatine fast rooted in the ground, And bearing leaves, no longer now a weapon but a tree, Which shadowed such as woondringly came thither for to see. Or else as Cippus when he in the ronning brooke had seene His homes. For why he saw them, and supposing there had beene No credit to bee given unto the glauncing image, hee Put oft his fingers to his head, and felt it so to bee. And blaming now no more his eyes, in comming from the chase With conquest of his foes, he stayd. And lifting up his face

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. And yynde Dooth whiz amongst them, or as from the sea dooth farre rebound: Even such among the folk of Rome that present was the sound. Howbee't in that confused roare of fearefull folk, did fall Out oneand shetting in of nyght. Moreover on the brazen gate at which this Cippus myght Have entred Rome, a payre of homes were gravde to represent His woondrous shape, as of his deede an endlesse monum
Or if He have deserved, bynd him fast in fetters like a theef. Or in this fatall Tyrants death, of feare dispatch your mynd. Such noyse as Pynetrees make what tyme the heady easterne wynde Dooth whiz amongst them, or as from the sea dooth farre rebound: Even such among the folk of Rome that present was the sound. Howbee't in that confused roare of fearefull folk, did fall Out one voyce asking, Whoo is hee? And staring therewithall Uppon theyr foreheads, they did seeke the foresayd homes. Agen (Quoth Cippus) Lo, yee have the man for whom yee seeke. And then He pulld (ageinst his peoples will) his garlond from his head, And shewed them the two fayre homes that on his browes were spred. At that the people dassheth downe theyr lookes and syghing is Ryght sorye (whoo would think it trew?) to see that head of his, Most famous for his good deserts.

A Tyrrhene wizard having sought the bowelles, saw therin Great chaunges and attempts of things then readye to begin, Which were not playnly manifest. But when that he at last His eyes from inwards of the beast on Cippus homes had cast, Hayle king (he sayd). For untoo thee, O Cippus, unto thee, And to thy homes shall this same place and Rome obedyent bee. Abridge delay: and make thou haste to enter at the gates Which tarrye open for thee. So commaund the soothfast fates. Thou shalt bee king assoone as thou hast entred once the towne, And thou and thyne for evermore shalt weare the royall crowne. With that he stepping back his foote, did turne his frowning face From Romeward, saying: Farre, O farre, the Goddes such handsel cha
