'Were Tarquin Night, as he is but Night's child, (786)

The silver-shining queen he would distain; (787)

Her twinkling handmaids too, by him defiled, (788)

Through Night's black bosom should not peep again: (789)

So should I have co-partners in my pain;
And fellowship in woe doth woe assuage, (791)

As palmers' chat makes short their pilgrimage.
