Where turning first I spied above

Her own dear Phænix hovering; Whereat, methought, in melting love

Apace with tears mine eyes did spring. But, fool, while I aloft did look

For her that was to heaven flown, This goodly place my sight forsook,

And on the sudden all was gone.

With grief awak'd, I gaz'd around,

And, casting up to heaven mine eye, “Oh God!" I said, “ where may be found

“ These patrons now of chivalry? “ But Virtue present and secure

“We hate ; when from our knowledge hid,
By all the means we her allure
“ To take her dwelling where she did.”

“ Cumberland : Lord Willoughby; Sir Philip Sidney ; Sis “ John Norris, &c,”
