er, Untill the hotest of the day and Noone be overpast. And if for feare of savage beastes perchaunce thou be agast To wander in the Woods alone, thou shalt not neede to feare, A God shall bee thy guide to save thee harmelesse every where. And not a God of meaner sort, but even the same that hath The heavenly scepter in his hande, who in my dreadfull wrath, Do dart downe thunder wandringly: and therefore make no hast To runne away. She ranne apace, and had alreadie past The Fen of Lerna and the field of Lincey set with trees: When Jove intending now in vaine no lenger tyme to leese, Upon the Countrie all about did bring a foggie mist, And caught the Mayden whome poore foole he used as he list. Queene Juno looking downe that while upon the open field, When in so fayre a day such mistes and darkenesse she behelde, Dyd marvell much, for well she knewe those mistes ascended not From any Ryver, moorishe ground, or other dankishe plot.

thoughtfull was she still For doubt he should invent some meanes to steale hir from hir: till To Argus, olde Aristors sonne, she put hir for to keepe. This Argus had an hundreth eyes: of which by turne did sleepe Alwayes a couple, and the rest did duely watch and warde, And of the charge they tooke in hande had ever good regarde, What way so ever Argus stood with face, with backe, or side, To Io warde, before his eyes did lo still abide. All day he let hir graze abroade, the Sunne once under ground He shut hir up and by the necke with wrythen Withe hir bound. With croppes of trees and bitter weedes now was she dayly fed, And in the stead of costly couch and good soft featherbed, She sate a nightes upon the ground, and on such ground whereas Was not sometime so much as grasse: and oftentymes she was Compeld to drinke of muddie pittes: and when she did devise To Argus for to lift hir handes in meeke and humble wise, She sawe she had no handes at all: and when she did
Thessaly (Greece) (search for this): book 1, card 567
There is a lande in Thessalie enclosd on every syde With wooddie hilles, that Timpe hight, through mid whereof doth glide Penaeus gushing full of froth from foote of Pindus hye, Which with his headlong falling downe doth cast up violently A mistie streame lyke flakes of smoke, besprinckling all about The toppes of trees on eyther side, and makes a roaring out That may be heard a great way off. This is the fixed seate, This is the house and dwelling place and chamber of the greate And mightie Ryver: Here he sittes in Court of Peeble stone, And ministers justice to the waves and to the Nymphes eche one, That in the Brookes and waters dwell. Now hither did resorte (Not knowing if they might rejoyce and unto mirth exhort Or comfort him) his Countrie Brookes, Sperchius well beseene With sedgie heade and shadie bankes of Poplars fresh and greene, Enipeus restlesse, swift and quicke, olde father Apidane, Amphrisus with his gentle streame, and Aeas clad with cane: With dyvers other R

e I gesse amisse, Some wrong agaynst me (quoth she) now my husbande working is. And with that worde she left the Heaven, and downe to earth shee came, Commaunding all the mistes away. But Jove foresees the same, And to a Cow as white as milke his Leman he convayes. She was a goodly Heifer sure: and Juno did hir prayse, Although (God wot) she thought it not, and curiously she sought, Where she was bred, whose Cow she was, who had hir thither broughte As though she had not knowne the truthall shame to flight. But that he feared if he should denie a gift so light As was a Cowe to hir that was his sister and his wyfe, Might make hir thinke it was no Cow, and breede perchaunce some strife. Now when that Juno had by gift hir husbands Leman got, Yet altogether out of feare and carelesse was she not. She had him in a jelousie and thoughtfull was she still For doubt he should invent some meanes to steale hir from hir: till To Argus, olde Aristors sonne, she put hir for to keepe. T
