THE POSIE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Let wits contest
Last Line: Of all gods mercies, is my posie still.
Variant Title(s): The Posy


LET wits contest,
And with their words and posies windows fill:
Lesse than the least
Of all thy mercies, is my posie still.

This on my ring,
This by my picture, in my book, I write:
Whether I sing,
Or say, or dictate, this is my delight.

Invention, rest;
Comparisons, go play; wit, use thy will:
Lesse than the least
Of all Gods mercies, is my posie still.
