VVHeare true desire, (in simpathie of minde)
Hath ioin'd the heartes, with APHRODITES de∣light;
There louing zeale, (to swete aspect inclin'd)
Will finde a time in spite of fortunes might.
ARGVS forefight, whose wake-full heedie eyes
Seeke to preuent the wynged Gods commaunde)
Is all to weake his charmes for to surprise;
Gainst whose resolue his cuning could not stande:
Yet if in Delphos sleepie laye the God,
Authoritie gainst Hundreth eies had fayld,
But MERCVRIE, with his enchaunting rod;
Brought all a sleepe; when Argus Ioue assayld:
Then since such happ•… to watching is assign'd,
Nothinge is harde where willing is the minde.
