Hymn to Diana

Written by: | Biography
QUEEN and huntress chaste and fair  
Now the sun is laid to sleep  
Seated in thy silver chair  
State in wonted manner keep: 
Hesperus entreats thy light 5 
Goddess excellently bright.
Earth let not thy envious shade Dare itself to interpose; Cynthia's shining orb was made Heaven to clear when day did close: 10 Bless us then with wish¨¨d sight Goddess excellently bright.
Lay thy bow of pearl apart And thy crystal-shining quiver; Give unto the flying hart 15 Space to breathe how short soever: Thou that mak'st a day of night¡ª Goddess excellently bright.
