Eng 201 1 Petrarchan Sonnet 64 of Amoretti By Edmund Spenser (p. 904) Coming to kisse her lyps (such grace I found) a Me seemd I smelt a gardin of sweet flowers b That dainty odour from them threw around, a For damsel fit to decke their lovers bowres. b Her lip did smell lyke unto Gillyflowers, b Her ruddy cheeks lyke unto Roses red; c Her snowy browses lyke budded Bellamoures, b Her lovely eyes like Pincks but newly spred, c Her goodly bosome lyke a Strawberry bed, c Her neck lyke to a bounch of Cullambynes; d Her brest lyke lillyes, ere theyr leaves be shed, c Herr nipple lyke yong blossomd Jeemynes. d Such fragrant flowers doe give most odorous smell, e But her sweet odour did them all excell. e Conceit: Compares beloved to flowers’ beauty and scent Claims that her qualities exceed those of nature Anti-Petrarchan Sonnet 130 by William Shakespeare (p. 1074) My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun; a Coral is far more red than her lips’ red; b If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun; a If hairs be wire, black wires grow on her head.
