Though the Castalian Dames, (and all the rest,
Of Women kinde) love youthful spirits best,
Yet I have known them oftentimes inspire
Autumnal braines with heats of Enthean fire;
Nay, 'tis observ'd in those whom Phoebus loves
The more the sense impaires, the soul improves,
He darts on aged trees so bright a stroak,
As on the Stander of a lustie Oke.
