Antipatris (Israel) (search for this): book 5, card 409
Betweene the fountaines of Cyane and Arethuse of Pise An arme of Sea that meetes enclosde with narrow homes there lies. Of this the Poole callde Cyane which beareth greatest fame Among the Nymphes of Sicilie did algates take the name. Who vauncing hir unto the waste amid hir Poole did know Dame Proserpine, and said to Dis: Ye shall no further go: You cannot Ceres sonneinlawe be, will she so or no. You should have sought hir courteously and not enforst hir so. And if I may with great estates my simple things compare, Anapus was in love with me: but yet he did not fare As you doe now with Proserpine. He was content to woo And I unforst and unconstreind consented him untoo. This said, she spreaded forth hir armes and stopt him of his way. His hastie wrath Saturnus sonne no lenger then could stay. But chearing up his dreadfull Steedes did smight his royall mace With violence in the bottome of the Poole in that same place. The ground streight yeelded to his stroke and made him wa
rched busily, She also came to Cyane: who would assuredly Have tolde hir all things, had she not transformed bene before. But mouth and tongue for uttrance now would serve hir turne no more. Howbeit a token manifest she gave hir for to know What was become of Proserpine. Her girdle she did show Still hovering on hir holie poole, which slightly from hir fell As she that way did passe: and that hir mother knew too well. For when she saw it, by and by as though she had but than Bene new advertisde of hir chaunce, she piteously began To rend hir ruffled haire, and beate hir handes against hir brest. As yet she knew not where she was. But yet with rage opprest, She curst all landes, and said they were unthankfull everychone, Yea and unworthy of the fruites bestowed them upon. But bitterly above the rest she banned Sicilie, In which the mention of hir losse she plainely did espie. And therefore there with cruell hand the earing ploughes she brake, And man and beast that t

The carefull mother in the while did seeke hir daughter deare Through all the world both Sea and Land, and yet was nere the neare. The Morning with hir deawy haire hir slugging never found, Nor yet the Evening star that brings the night upon the ground. Two seasoned Pynetrees at the mount of Aetna did she light And bare them restlesse in hir handes through all the dankish night. Againe as soone as chierfull day did dim the starres, she sought Hir daughter still from East to West. And being overwrought She caught a thirst: no liquor yet had come within hir throte. By chaunce she spied nere at hand a pelting thatched Cote Wyth peevish doores: she knockt thereat, and out there commes a trot. The Goddesse asked hir some drinke and she denide it not: But out she brought hi
