What is the meaning of Edmund spenser's Amoretti sonnet #1?

Answer

Spenser is talking to his poem/book about how wonderful it would be for his beloved to read his words; it would mean everything to him for his beloved to behold his loving words. He uses the patrician style which is usually used by men who cannot have the woman they love, though Spenser did have the woman he loved. He also uses Greek metaphors, comparing her to a goddess.
