The Dove, or Passages of Cosmography, by Richard Zouche, Civilian of New College, Oxon; Printed at London, 1613. Zouche is a very indifferent Poet, as you may judge.

Old Winchester, the ancient Seat of Kings,
For Virtue, and for Valour, much renown'd,
So subject unto Change are earthly Things,
Instead of Diadems with Bays is crown'd.
Where worthy Wickham's Children, none maintain,
The Fame once known by great King Arthur's Train.
