For there all happie peace and plenteous store Conspire in one to make contented blisse: No wayling there nor wretchednesse is heard, No bloodie issues nor no leprosies, No grisly famine, nor no raging sweard, No nightly bodrags [raids], nor no hue and cries; The shepheards there abroad may safely lie, On hills and downes, withouten dread or daunger: No rauenous wolues the good mans hope destroy, Nor outlawes fell affray the forest raunger (310-19).
