Zepheria
Canzon 9. When as the Golden Waggoner had frayed
Anonymous
 
WHEN as the Golden Waggoner had frayed
Black Winter’s outrage, with his brighter shine;
And that in Mansion of the Twins he styed,
His team; then ’gan my heart to twine with thine!
  Even when his gorgeous mantle he had spread,        5
Wherewith he wiped wept-tears from TELLUS’ bosom;
Wantoning here with her, leaves THETIS’ bed,
Like dainty midwife FLORA, to unwomb
  Sweet babes of TELLUS and HYPERION,
When ye full soomed in Winter’s mew doon mooting,        10
O then, the seeds of Love, by thine eyes sown,
Down through mine eyes, within mine heart took rooting.
  This difference left ’twixt me and Nature’s store;
  Her Spring returns! My flower may spread no more!
