Poem 4

by
 YE Nymphes of Mulla which with carefull heed,
The siluer scaly trouts doe tend full well,
and greedy pikes which vse therein to feed,
(Those trouts and pikes all others doo excell)
And ye likewise which keepe the rushy lake,
Where none doo fishes take.
Bynd vp the locks the which hang scatterd light, And in his waters which your mirror make, Behold your faces as the christall bright, That when you come whereas my loue doth lie, No blemish she may spie.
And eke ye lightfoot mayds which keepe the dore, That on the hoary mountayne vie to towre, And the wylde wolues which seeke them to deuoure, With your steele darts doo chace fro[m] comming neer Be also present heere, To helpe to decke her and to help to sing, That all the woods may answer and your eccho ring.
