Amoretti LXIII

After long stormes and tempests sad assay,
  Which hardly I endured heretofore:
  in dread of death and daungerous dismay,
  with which my silly barke was tossed sore.
I doe at length descry the happy shore,
  in which I hope ere long for to arryue,
  fayre soyle it seemes from far & fraught with store
  of all that deare and daynty is alyue.
Most happy he that can at last atchyue
  the ioyous safety of so sweet a rest:
  whose least delight sufficeth to depriue
  remembrance of all paines which him opprest.
All paines are nothing in respect of this,
  all sorrowes short that gaine eternall blisse.
