票下Pamphilus having ended his Tale, the King declaring an outwardshew of compassion, in regard of Andreanaes disastrous Fortune;fixed his eye on Madam Aemilia, and gave her such an apparant signe,as expressed his pleasure, for her next succeeding in discourse; whichbeing sufficient for her understanding, thus she began. Faireassembly, the Novell so lately delivered by Pamphilus, maketh mewilling to report another to you, varying from it, in any kinde ofresemblance; onely this excepted: that as Andreana lost her lover in aGarden, even so did she of whom I am now to speake. And beingbrought before the seate of Justice, according as Andreana was,freed her selfe from the power of the Law; yet neither by force, orher owne vertue, but by her sodaine and inopinate death. Andalthough the nature of Love is such (according as we have oftentimesheeretofore maintained) to make his abiding in the houses of theNoblest persons; yet men and women of poore and farre inferiourquality, do not alwayes sit out of his reach, though enclosed in theirmeanest Cottages; declaring himselfe sometime as a powerfullcommaunder in those humble places, as he doth in the richest andmost imperious Palaces. As will plainly appeare unto you, either inall, or a great part of my Novell, whereto our Citie pleadeth sometitle; though, by the diversity of our discourses, talking of somany severall accidents; we have wandred into many other parts ofthe world, to make all answerable to our owne liking.悦彩票下载悦彩
票下It is not any long time since, when there lived in our City ofFlorence, a young and beautifull Damosell, yet according to the natureof her condition; because she was the Daughter of a poore Father,and called by the name of Simonida. Now, albeit she was not suppliedby any better means, then to maintaine her selfe by her ownepainfull travell, and earne her bread before she could eate it, bycarding and spinning to such as employed her; yet was she not sobase or dejected a spirit, but had both courage and sufficient vertue,to understand the secret soliciting of love, and to distinguish theparts of well deserving both by private behaviour and outwardceremony. As naturall instinct was her first tutor thereto, sowanted she not a second maine and urging motion, a chip hewed out ofthe like Timber, one no better in birth then her selfe, a proper youngspringall, named Pasquino, whose generous behaviour, and gracefullactions (in bringing her dayly wooll to spin, by reason his Master wasa Clothier) prevailed upon her liking and affection.悦彩悦彩票下载票下Nor was he negligent in the observation of her amorous regards,but the Tinder tooke, and his soule flamed with the selfe same fire;making him as desirous of her loving acceptance, as possibly she couldbe of his: so that the commanding power of love, could not easily bedistinguished in which of them it had the greater predominance. Forevery day as he brought her fresh supply of woolles, and found herseriously busied at her wheele: her soule would vent forth manydeepe sighes, and those sighes fetch floods of teares from her eyes,thorough the singular good opinion she had conceyved of him, andearnest desire to enjoy him. Pasquino on the other side, as leysuregave him leave for the least conversing with her: his disease wasevery way answerable to hers, for teares stood in his eyes, sighesflew abroad, to ease the poore hearts afflicting oppressions, whichthough he was unable to conceale; yet would he seeme to clowd themcleanly, by entreating her that his Masters worke might be neatlyperformed, and with such speed as time would permit her, intermixinginfinite praises of her artificiall spinning; and affirming withall,that the Quilles of Yearne received from her, were the choisest beautyof the whole peece; so that when other workewomen played, Simonida wassure to want no employment.悦彩票下Hereupon, the one soliciting, and the other taking delight inbeing solicited; it came to passe, that often accesse bred thebolder courage, and over-much bashfulnesse became abandoned, yet noimmodesty passing betweene them: but affection grew the bettersetled in them both, by interchangeable vowes of constantperseverance, so that death onely, but no disaster else had power todivide them. Their mutuall delight continuing on in this manner,with more forcible encreasing of their Loves equall flame: itfortuned, that Pasquino sitting by Simonida, told her of a goodlyGarden, whereto he was desirous to bring her, to the end, that theymight the more safely converse together, without the suspition ofenvious eyes. Simonida gave answer of her wellliking the motion, andacquainting her Father therewith, he gave her leave, on the Sundayfollowing after dinner, to go fetch the pardon of S. Gallo, andafterwards to visit the Garden.
悦彩票下A modest yong maiden named Lagina, following the same profession,and being an intimate familiar friend, Simonida tooke along in hercompany, and came to the Garden appointed by Pasquino; where she foundhim readily expecting her comming, and another friend also with him,called Puccino (albeit more usually tearmed Strambo) a secretwell-willer to Lagina, whose love became the more furthered by hisfriendly meeting. Each Lover delighting in his hearts chosenMistresse, caused them to walke alone by themselves, as thespaciousnesse of the Garden gave them ample liberty: Puccino withhis Lagina in one part, and Pasquino with his Simonida in another. Thewalke which they had made choise of, was by a long and goodly bed ofSage, turning and returning by the same bed their conference ministredoccasion, and as they pleased to recreate themselves, affecting ratherto continue still there, then in any part of the Garden.悦彩详情
