This guest of summer,
The temple-haunting martlet, does approve,
5 By his loved mansionry, that the heavens breath
Smells wooingly here. No jutty, frieze,
Buttress, nor coign of vantage, but this bird
Hath made his pendant bed and procreant cradle.
Where they most breed and haunt, I have observed,
10 The air is delicate.

All our service,
15 In every point twice done and then done double,
