1606 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Samuel Daniel

Anonymous, in Second Part of Returne from Pernassus (1606) Sig. B2.



Sweete hony dropping D: doth wage
Warre with the proudest big Italian,
That melts his heart in sugred Sonnetting.
Onely let him more sparingly make use,
Of others wit, and use his owne the more:
That well may scorne base imitation.
