TO THE LADY MARY VILLARS, GOVERNESS TO PRINCESS HENRIETTA, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: When I of villars doe but heare the name
Last Line: To kisse your hand, most dainty governesse.


When I of Villars doe but heare the name,
It calls to mind, that mighty Buckingham,
Who was your brave exalted Uncle here,
(Binding the wheele of Fortune to his Sphere)
Who spurn'd at Envie; and co'd bring, with ease,
An end to all his stately purposes.
For his love then, whose sacred Reliques show
Their Resurrection, and their growth in you:
And for my sake, who ever did prefer
You, above all Those Sweets of Westminster:
Permit my Book to have a free accesse
To kisse your hand, most Dainty Governesse.
