TO THE TRVLY
Honourable Lady, the Lady
ELIZABETH CARIE. +
D eigne worthy LADY, (Englands happy Muse, Learning delight, that all things else exceeds ) To shield from Enuies pawe and time abuse : The tunefull noates of these our Shepheards reeds.
(5) Sweet is the concord, and the Musicke such That at it Riuers have beene seen to daunce, When these Musitians did their sweet Pipes tuch In silence lay the vales, as in a traunce.
The Satyre stopt his race to heare them sing , (10) And bright Apollo to these layes hath giuen So great a gift, that any favouring The Shepheards quill, shall with the lights of Heaven
Haue equall fate: Then cherrish (faire Stem) So shall they liue by thee, and thou by them.
euer to command Richard More
