1616 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

John Davies of Hereford

William Browne of Tavistock, in Britannia's Pastorals (1616) 2:38.



Davies and Wither, by whose Muses power
A naturall day to me seemes but an houre,
And could I ever heare their learned layes,
Ages would turne to artificiall dayes.
