To the Right Ho. and most most Reverend Father in God my Lord Archb. of Canterb. his grace.

Thou temp'rate Soule, that holdst promotion
To be but Vertues meede; and vertuouslie
Dost higher prize the Soules devotion
Proceeding from the low'st humilitie:
Passion-suppressing wel-disposed spirit,
Cleere glasse wherein true Pastors may behold
The hall'wed life that heaven doth inherit,
Whose praises Glorie writes in liquid gold.
O helpeful, harmelesse, vertuous virgin-Priest!
O louing tender-harted gaullesse Doue!
O that Arte could in thy praise so insist
As answere might the measure of my loue!
But for my loue herein surmounts my skill,
Accept this poore show of my rich good-will.
I. D.
