“The Princely Pallace of the Sunne stood gorgeous to beholde on stately Pillars builded high of yellow burnisht golde,  Beset with sparckling Carbuncles that like to fire did shine.  The roofe was framed curiously of Ivorie pure and fine.The two doore leaves of silver cleare a radiant light did cast: 
But yet the cunning workemanship of things therein farre past.  The stuffe wherof the doores were made.  For there a perfect plat Had Vulcane drawn of all the worlde:"

The.XV.Bookes of P.Ovidius.Naso, entytuled Metamorphosis, translated oute of Latin into English meter, by Arthur Golding Gentleman.
