Amoretti IV by Edmund Spenser

Home / Edmund Spenser / Amoretti IV by Edmund Spenser

New year forth looking out of Janus’ gate,
Doth seem to promise hope of new delight:
And bidding th’ old Adieu, his passed date
Bids all old thoughts to die in dumpish sprite.
And calling forth out of sad Winter’s night,
Fresh love, that long hath slept in cheerless bower:
Wills him awake, and soon about him dight
His wanton wings and darts of deadly power.
For lusty spring now in his timely hour,
Is ready to come forth him to receive;
And warns the Earth with diverse colored flower,
To deck herself, and her fair mantle weave.
Then you fair flower, in whom fresh youth doth rain,
Prepare yourself new love to entertain.
