Edmund Spenser Quotes

    Poem 20

    BVt let stil Silence trew night watches keepe,
    That sacred peace may in assurance rayne,
    And tymely sleep, when it is tyme to sleepe,
    May poure his limbs forth on your pleasant playne,
    The whiles an hundred little winged loues,
    Like diuers fethered doues,
    Shall fly and flutter round about your bed,
    And in the secret darke, that none reproues,
    Their prety stealthes shal worke, & snares shal spread
