1633 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

George Wither

Sr. T. I., in Wither, Juvenilia (1633).



Loe this is he whose infant Muse begann
To brave the World before yeares stil'd him Man;
Though praise he sleight and scornes to make his Rymes
Begg favors or opinion of the Tymes,
Yet few by good men have bine more approv'd
None so unseene, so generally lov'd.
