April from The Shepheardes Calendar, or, as Spenser wrote it, Aprill. This Æglogue was written to honour Queen Elizabeth I. There are two shepherds, Hobbinoll and Thenott; we met Hobbinoll earlier, when he loved Colin. Queen Elizabeth is shown along with various courtiers, as is the zodiac sign for Taurus and its bull.
