Poems of Robert Greene

Samela

LIKE to Diana in her summer weed,
   Girt with a crimson robe of brightest dye,
   Goes fair Samela.
Whiter than be the flocks that straggling feed
   When wash'd by Arethusa faint they lie,
   Is fair Samela.
As fair Aurora in her morning grey,
   Deck'd with the ruddy glister of her love
   Is fair Samela;

[Hata Bildir]
