MASQUE AT THE MARRIAGE OF THE EARL OF SOMERSET: SECOND SQUIRE (1), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A strange and sad osten our knights distress
Last Line: And all was hushed. As storm had never been.


A strange and sad osten our knights distressed;
For while the tempest's fiery rage increased,
About our decks and hatches, lo, appear
Serpents, as Lerna had been poured out there,
Crawling about us; which fear to eschew,
The knights the tackle climbed, and hung in view,
When violently a flash of lightning came,
And from our sights did bear them in the flame:
Which past, no serpent there was to be seen,
And all was hushed. as storm had never been.
