Random Poem of the Day

1In highest way of heau'n the Sunne did ride,
3Hauing no scarfe of clowds before his face,
4But shining foorth of heate in his chiefe pride;
5When some faire Ladies by hard promise tied,
6On horse-back met him in his furious race,
7Yet each prepar'd with fannes wel shading grace,
8From that foes woundes their tender skinnes to hide.
9Stella alone with face vnarmed marcht,
11Or carelesse of the wealth because her owne:
12Yet were the hid and meaner beauties parcht,
13Her daintiest bare went free; the cause was this,
14The Sunne which others burn'd, did her but kisse.
