The Discovery of the Little World, with the government thereof. By Iohn Davies

collapse section


If this a Riddle be, then so be it,
Yet Truth approues what therein hid doth lie,
And Truth's most louelie in the Eye of VVit
When she is rob'd with richest misterie:
In few, by losse we haue gott benefitt,
That's, six for one, by lawfull vserie:
Then, if we gaine by losse, our losse is gaine;
So saith France, Flāders, Scotland, Irelād, Spaine.
