“ More to instruct thee, when five years shall end, I will again to visit thee descend,

Bringing thy beauteous fon to charm thy sight, " Whose godlike form shall fill thee with delight; “ Him will I leave thenceforward to thy care, “ And will that with him thou to Troy repair: “ There, if enquiry shall be made, to know “ To whom thou dost fo bright an offspring owe; “ Be sure thou nothing of the truth detect, “ But ready answer make as I direct. “ Say of a fylvan nymph the fair youth came, “ And Calycopis call his mother's name. " For should'st thou boast the truth, and madly own " That thou in bliss hadst Cytherea known, “ Jove would his anger pour upon thy head, “ And with avenging thunder strike thee dead. “ Now all is told thee, and just caution given, “ Be secret thou, and dread the wrath of heaven.”

She said, and sudden foar'd above his fight, Cutting through liquid air her heavenward fight.

All hail, bright Cyprian Queen! thee first I praise, Then to some other

transfer

my lays.
