Licia Sonnets 30

Whenas my Licia sailed in the seas, 
Viewing with pride god Neptune's stately crown, 
A calm she made, and brought the merchant ease, 
The storm she stayed, and checked him with a frown. 
Love at the stern sate smiling and did sing 
To see how seas had learned for to obey; 
And balls of fire into the waves did fling; 
And still the boy full wanton thus did say 
"Both poles we burnt whereon the world doth turn, 
The round of heaven from earth unto the skies; 
And now the seas we both intend to burn, 
I with my bow, and Licia with her eyes." 
Then since thy force, heavens, earth, nor seas can move, 
I conquered yield, and do confess I love.
