Laura—Part I.
XXVIII. Diana shineth in the heavens clear
Robert Tofte (1561–1620)
 
DIANA shineth in the heavens clear;
Because from purest Sun she takes her light:
And Fair, she shews that of DIANA here
On Earth, doth borrow beauty passing bright.
The virtue then that is infused in her,        5
She from DIANA hath; or else from none:
For other thews do all in her concur;
And unto her beholding are alone.
  O wonder strange of Nature to reveal!
  She, DIAN’ gives; yet doth from DIAN’ steal.
Sienna.
