In her gondelay -- a decorative little boat -
[Phaedria] acts the immodest temptress to heroic knights.
A little Gondelay, bedecked trim,Those were simpler days when "sweet solace to oneself" could be achieved by rubbing flowers on one's shoulder and neck. Of course that was before the authorities stepped in and banned flowers in the interests of public morality.
With boughes and arbours woven cunningly,
That like a little forrest seemed outwardly.
And therein sate a lady fresh and fayre,
Making sweet solace to her selfe alone.
