EnglandsHelicon T2v


Both within them-selues oppressed, But each in the other blessed. Him great harmes had taught much care,(10) Her faire necke a foule yoake bare: +But her sight his cares did banish, In his sight her yoake did vanish. Wept they had, alas the while. But now teares them-selues did smile. (15) While their eyes by Loue directed, Enterchangeably reflected. Sigh they did, but now betwixt, Sighs of woes, were glad sighs mixt, With armes crost, yet testifying (20) Restlesse rest, and liuing dying. Their eares hungry of each word, Which the deare tongue would afford, But their tongues restrain’d from walking, Till their harts had ended talking. (25) But when their tongues could not speake, Loue it selfe did silence breake, Loue did set his lips a-sunder, Thus to speake in loue and wonder. Stella, Soueraigne of my ioy, (30) Faire triumpher of annoy, Stella, starre of heauenly fire, Stella, Loadstarre of desire. Stella, in whose shining eyes, Are the lights of Cupids skies, (35) Whose beames where they once are darted, Loue there-with is straite imparted. Stella, whose voyce when it speakes, Sences all a-sunder breakes. Stella, whose voyce when it singeth. (40) Angels to acquaintance bringeth. Stella, in whose body is Writ each Character of blisse, Whose face all, all beauty passeth, Saue thy minde, which it surpasseth.
