rosarum

cuius leve nitent in solem culmina, at infra sole caret gemmantem abdens se truncus in herbam. possit ibi sopita semel ferventior aetas fallere dum teritur : laetus velit error ibidem ire dies totos neque delassetur eundo.

huc epulas rite instaurans rex flore rosarum mane nitens aderat crines; hic semper amoenas centum elucebant Phoebo vergente per umbras perpetuis lychni ramis, quibus omne micabat huc illuc nemus et festis laeta orgia mensis : at ferrugineo rutilantes desuper auro lunae intercipiunt frondes argentea tela.

Diaphenia.

DIAPHENIA like the daffadowndilly,

White as the sun, fair as the lily, Heigh ho, how I do love thee!

I do love thee as my lambs

Are belovéd of their dams ; How blest were I if thou would'st prove me

S

Diaphenia like the spreading roses,

That in thy sweet all sweets encloses, Fair sweet, how I do love thee!

I do love thee as each flower

Loves the sun's life-giving power ; For dead, thy breath to life might move me. In Lydiam.

Albae par violae, magis

puro sole, magis candida liliis, eheu, Lydia, qui meum

pertentans animum fervet amor tui! hoc te quo subolem gregis

matres lacteolam pectore prosequor : quis felicior audiat,

tu spectare fidem si properes meam ? o laetae similis rosae,

o quaecunque vigent unica continens in te suavia, quam places

semper pulcra mihi, semper amabilis ! flores ut teneri iubar

almum solis amant, sic ego Lydiam : lucis scilicet exuli

aspirans animam tu mihi suscites.

[ocr errors]

ere

Diaphenia like to all things blesséd,

If all thy praises were expressed, Dear joy, how I do love thee!

As the birds do love the spring,

As the bees their careful king;
Then in requite, sweet virgin, love me!

CONSTABLE.

V

o dicenda quod uspiam

fausti, tot veneres si foret eloqui, omnes o mihi gaudium

praeter delicias, gratior enites quam ver est avibus novom,

quam prudens populis, Lydia, rex apum. cessas, quin face mutua

mollescens referas, lux mea, gratiam ?
