With how sad steps, o Moone, thou climb’st the skies

Loving in truth, and faine in verse my love to show,

That she deare she might take some pleasure of my paine:

Pleasure might cause her to reade, reading might make her know,

Knowledge might pitie winne, and pitie grace obtaine

Astrophil  and Stella – Sir Philip Sidney
