1597 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Henry Lok

H. A., "To the Worke" Lok, Ecclesiates (1597) Sig. A6.



Thee Princes pen, now present to a Prince,
And poeme to a princely spirited Muse:
Ye full sound Ethicks of the sweet essence
Of heavenly truth, which all ought to peruse
View all, reape good, leave ill without excuse.
