Canzon 29. How many golden days! have I set free
Anonymous
 
HOW many golden days! have I set free
From tedious travail in a sadder Muse,
While I, of amours have conferred with thee!
While I, long absence never need excuse!
  Sweet was Occasion! and for sweet inexplicable,        5
That eyes’ invited guests unto thine eyes’ fare;
When, by thy dainty leave, on coral table
I fed! O there, I sucked celestial air!
  Amidst these sug’ry junkets thirsty, I
Have thy delicious hand, with my lips pressed!        10
I drew for wine, but found ’twas Ambrosie:
O how my spirits inly that refreshed!
  Yet, ay me! since I relished this delight;
  I e’er more thirsted with a hotter appetite!
