SAPHO AND PHAO

ACTUS PRIMUS

SCHÆNA PRIMA.--〈At the Ferry.〉

Phao, Venus, Cupid.

Enter, Phao.〉

Phao. THou art a Ferriman, Phao, yet a free man, possessing for riches content, and for honors quiet. Thy thoughts are no higher the thy fortunes, nor thy desires greater then thy calling. Who climeth, standeth on glasse, and falleth on thorne.

Thy hearts thirste is satisfied with thy hands thrift, and thy gentle5
labours in the day, turne to sweete slumbers in the night. As much doth it delight thee to rule thine oare in a calme streame, as it dooth Sapho to swaye the Scepter in her braue court. Enuie neuer casteth her eie lowe, ambition pointeth alwaies vpwarde, and reuenge
barketh onely at starres. Thou farest dilicately, if thou haue a fare10
to buy any thing. Thine angle is ready, when thine oar is idle and as sweet is the fish which thou gettest in the ryuer, as the fowle which other buye in the market. Thou needst not feare poyson in thy glasse, nor treason in thy garde. The winde is thy greatest
enemy, whose might is withstoode with pollicy. O sweete life,15
seldom found vnder a goldẽ couert, oftẽ vnder a thached cotage. But here commeth one, I will withdrawe my selfe aside, it may be a passenger. 〈Retires, as enter Venus and Cupid.〉

Venus. It is no lesse vnseemely then vnwholsom for Venus, who

is most honoured in Princes courtes, to soiourne with Vulcan in20
a smithes forge, where bellowes blow in steede of sighes, dark smokes rise for sweet perfumes, & for the panting of louing hearts, is only heard the beating of steeled hãmers. Vnhappy Venus, yt cariing
