Edmund Spenser

(1552 - 13 January 1599 / London / England)

Poem 96


SHe tooke him streight full pitiously lamenting,
and wrapt him in her smock:
She wrapt him softly, all the while repenting,
that he the fly did mock.
She drest his wound and it embaulmed wel
with salue of soueraigne might:
And then she bath'd him in a dainty well
the well of deare delight.
Who would not oft be stung as this,
to be so bath'd in Venus blis.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
