1603 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Bp. Joseph Hall

Henry Chettle, in Englandes Mourning Garment (1603) Sig. D2v.



Nor does our English Horace, whose steele pen
Can draw Characters which will never die,
Tell her [Elizabeth's] bright glories unto listning men,
Of her he seemes to have no memorie.
His Muse an other path desires to tread,
True Satyres scourge the living leave the dead.
