Laura—Part I.
IV. In the Egean dangerous Sea of Love
Robert Tofte (1561–1620)
 
IN the Egean dangerous Sea of Love,
In midst of faithless waves and wicked wind;
Where, to my cost, most bitter brunts I prove:
A new ARION, there, myself I find.
And though, as he, I play on harp and sing;        5
Yet cannot cunning mine so high aspire
As for to make the skipping fish me bring
Unto that wishèd shore I so desire.
  Only my LAURA, peerless for to see,
  May, in this troubled flood, my dolphin be!        10
