      Now from the North / Of Norumbega, and the Samoed shoar / Bursting thir brazen Dungeon, armd with ice / And snow and haile and stormie gust and flaw, / Boreas and Caecias and Argestes loud / And Thrascias rend the Woods and Seas upturn; / With adverse blast up-turns them from the South / Notus and Afer black with thundrous Clouds / From Serraliona []
