Mileta. Yes, we told you of him.

Sapho. Let him be heere too morow.

Mileta. He shall, will you haue a litle broth to comforte you?

Sapho. I can relish nothing. 75

Mileta. Yet a little you must take to sustaine nature.

Sapho. I cannot Mileta, I will not. Oh, which way shall I lye? what shall I doe? Heygh ho! O Mileta, help to reare me vp, my bed, my head lyes too lowe. You pester mee with too many clothes. Fie, you keepe the chamber too hotte!--auoide it! it may be I shall 80 steale a nappe when all are gone.

Mileta. Wee will. 〈Exeunt all the Ladies.〉

Sapho sola. Ah! impacient disease of loue, and Goddesse of loue thrise vnpitifull. The Eagle is neuer stricken with thunder, nor the Olyue with lightning, and maye great Ladies be plagued with loue? 85 O Venus, haue I not strawed thine Altars with sweete roses? kepte thy swannes in cleare ryuers? fead thy sparrowes with ripe come, & harboured thy doues in faire houses? Thy Tortoys haue I nourished vnder my fig tree, my chãber haue I ceeled with thy Cockleshels, & dipped thy spung into the freshest waters. Didst 90 thou nourse me in my swadling clouts with wholsome hearbes, that I might perish in my flowring yeares by fancie? I perceiue, but to late I perceiue, and yet not too late, because at last, that straines are caught aswell by stooping too low, as reaching to high: that eies are bleared as soone with vapours that come from the earth, as with 95 beames that procede from the sunne. Loue lodgeth sometimes in caues: & thou Phœbus, that in the pride of thy hearte shinest all day in our Horizon, at night dippest thy head in the Ocean. Resiste it Sapho, whilest it is yet tender. Of Acornes comes Oakes, of droppes floudes, of sparkes flames, of Atomies Elementes. But alas 100 it fareth with mee as with waspes, who feeding on serpents, make their stings more venomous: for glutting my selfe on the face of. Phao, I haue made my desire more desperate. Into the neast of an Alcyon no birde can enter but the Alcyon, and into the hart of so great a Ladie can any creep but a great Lord? There is an hearbe 105 (not vnlike vnto my loue) whiche the further it groweth from the sea, the salter it is; and my desires the more they swarue from reason, the more seeme they reasonable. When Phao commeth, what thƽ? wilt thou open thy loue? Yea. No! Sapho: but staring in his face
