ACTUS QUINTUS

SCHÆNA PRIMA.--〈The same.〉

Venus, Cupid.

Venus. Come, Cupid, receiue with thy fathers instruments, thy mothers instructions: for thou must be wise in conceite, if thou wilt be fortunate in execution. This arrow is feathered with the winges of Aegitus, which neuer sleepeth for feare of his hen:

the heade toucht with the stone Perillus, which causeth mistruste 5
and ielousie. Shoote this, Cupid, at men that haue faire wiues, which will make them rubbe the browes, when they swell in the brines. This shaft is headed with Lidian steel, which striketh a deepe disdain of yt which we most desire, ye feathers are of Turtel, but dipped
in the bloud of a Tigresse, draw this vp close to the head at Sapho, 10
that she may despise, where now she doates. Good my boye, gall her on the side, that for Phaos loue she may neuer sighe. This arrow is feathered with the Phœnix winge, and headed with the Eagles bill; it maketh me passionate in desires, in loue constant,
and wise in conueiaunce, melting as it were their fancies into faith: 15
this arrowe, sweete childe, and with as great ayme as thou canst, must Phao be striken withall, and cry softly to thy selfe in the very loose 'Venus'! Sweete Cupid mistake me not, I wil make a quiuer for that by it selfe. The fourth hath feathers of the Peacocke, but
glewed with the gum of the Mirtle tree, headed with fine golde, and 20
fastened with brittle Chrysocoll: this shoote at daintie and coy Ladies, at amiable and young Nymphes, chuse no other white but women: for this will worke lyking in their mindes, but not loue, affabilitie in speach, but no faith, courtly fauours to bee Mistresses ouer many,
but constant to none: sighes to be fetcht from the longes, not the 25
heart, and teares to bee wronge out with their fingers, not their eies, secrete laughing at mens pale lookes and neate attire, open reioycinge at their owne comlinesse and mens courtinge. Shoote this arrowe among the thickest of them, whose bosomes lye open, because they
woulde be striken with it. And seeing men tearme women Iupiters 30
