EGLAMOUR

The sun begins to gild the western sky,
And now it is about the very hour
That Sylvia at Friar Patrick’s cell should meet me.
She will not fail, for lovers break not hours
5 Unless it be to come before their time,
So much they spur their expedition.

SYLVIA

Amen, amen! Go on, good Eglamour,
Out at the postern by the abbey wall.

If we recover that, we are sure enough.
