ore of them!--(_to dancers_) Hither! and wind your maze! Again take up the dance!

_Porzia._ No, Rizzio, no!
For now delight would die under our feet,
And we but trample on it! No! Dismiss them
Back now to Capri!...
More than the woman fear within me warns it.
For you have been o'er bold--not vainly, nay,
For truth, I know, must dare--but there may be
More in this than you think.

_Rizzio._ And ere it rises
I cravenly must quench the altar-fires
That I attend--and our half-wedded joys?
No! no! More revels!
Till we shall utterly uncloud our bliss
And leave remembrance not a stain upon it!
A song, Tasso, a song!
The taunting one that swept us into laughter!
How runs it? did it not begin with Naples?
(_Recalls it._)

(Torre del Greco!)
Who fears the earthquake all her days!
(Torre del Greco!)


Who sits beneath Vesuvius
And shrives the castaways of us!<

She lives in the sub-tropical Northland of New Zealand with her husband and teenage son and likes to write books about everyday people, with the issues that affect them. As our author of the day, Woods talks about her Christmas Boxset, Three Wise Men, why she is not a fan of alpha males and reveals what readers can expect from her pen next.
