Cupid’s Hiding-place
By William Drummond of Hawthornden (1585–1649)
SWEET nymphs, if, as ye stray,
Ye find the froth-born goddess of the sea
All blubber’d, pale, undone,
Who seeks her giddy son,
That little god of love,        5
Whose golden shafts your chastest bosoms prove.
Who, leaving all the heavens, hath run away;
If ought to him that finds him she’ll impart,
Tell her he nightly lodgeth in my heart.
