'For in the dreadful dead of dark midnight, (1626)
With shining falchion in my chamber came (1627)
A creeping creature, with a flaming light, (1628)
And softly cried "Awake, thou Roman dame, (1629)
And entertain my love; else lasting shame
On thee and thine this night I will inflict, (1631)
If thou my love's desire do contradict.
