A Request to the Cittie of Hereford.

Deere Mother, in whose Wombe my vitall flame
Was kindled first by the Almighties breath,
Lend me thy name, to adde vnto my name,
That one, with other, may keepe both from death:
Vnto thy conscience I (poore I) appeale,
Whether or no, I haue deserved it;
My conscience telles me I haue sought thy weale
With al my skill, my will, my woorth, my witte.

Iudge God, iudge good men, iudge my truth herein,
Impartiall Iudges you shall iudge for me;
If so, my soule is fear'd, or I haue bin
(Deere Mother) what I now would seeme, to thee:

Eph. 6. 1, 2, 3, 4.

And doe confesse, though vnkinde Parents proue,

Yet are their children bound to seeke their loue.
Iohn Davies of Hereford.
