1663 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Sir Philip Sidney

Anonymous, "On Sir Philip Sidney" Recreation for Ingenious Head-peeces (1663) sig. O8v.



Reader within this ground Sir Philip Sidney lyes,
Nor is it fit that more
I should acquaint;
Lest superstition rise,
And men adore
A Lover, Scholler, Souldier, and a Saint.
