1640 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Thomas Randolph

Anonymous, "To Mr. Thomas Randolph" Wits Recreations (1640) sig. B5.



Thou darling of the Muses for we may
Be thought deserving, if what was thy play
Our utmost labours can produce, we will
Freely allow thee heir unto the hill,
The Muses did assign thee, and think 't fit,
Thy younger eares should have the elder-wit.
