The Daunce of the Shepheards
One day, when as the shepheard swaynes together Were met, to make their sports and merrie glee, As they are wont in faire sunshynie weather, The whiles their flockes in shadowes shrouded bee; They fell to daunce: then did they all agree, That Colin Clout should pipe, as one most fit; And Calidore should lead the ring, as hee That most in Pastorellaes grace did sit: Thereat frown’d Coridon, and his lip closely bit. But Calidore, of courteous inclination, Tooke Coridon and set him in his place, That he should lead the daunce, as was his fashion; For Coridon could daunce, and trimly trace; And when as Pastorella, him to grace, Her flowry girlond tooke from her owne head, And plast on his, he did it soone displace, And did it put on Coridon’s in stead: Then Coridon woxe frollicke, that earst seemed dead.Edmund Spenser [1552–1599]
