Sonetto. 23

UUHen sweete repose in loues fayre bower doth rest
Enchamp'd with vaile of an vnfain'd desire,
Then carefull thoughtes the fearefull mindes in∣uest,
Lest ARGVS should espie the kindled fire:
For where the dicte of such as may commaunde,
Forbidds the same, which louers must embrace,
There feare, and care, together doe demaund;
Account of thinges which honour may deface:
So is their ioyes with fearefull passions mixt,
Which doth encrease the ardencie of loue,
On the forbidden thinges our eyes are fixt;
Whose accents still doth loues affections moue:
Thus stolen loue is eu'r with feare possest,
〈◊〉〈◊〉 shadowes glymse oft feares the friendly guest.
