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.
