But now the mindful messenger, come back, (1584)

Brings home his lord and other company; (1585)

Who finds his Lucrece clad in mourning black: (1586)

And round about her tear-distained eye (1587)

Blue circles stream'd, like rainbows in the sky:
These water-galls in her dim element (1589)

Foretell new storms to those already spent.
