What do "soft peace" and "his flying race" mean here?
Love, borne in Greece, of late fled from his native place,
Forc’d by a tedious proofe, that Turkish hardned heart
Is no fit marke to pierce with his fine pointed dart:
And pleasd with our soft peace, staid here his flying race.
Astrophil and Stella, 8. 1– 4.
