PANEGYRIC, by            
First Line: I do not know what I can bring
Last Line: Their stars include the unarmed fish.


I do not know what I can bring
To court the graces of my king,
Not having any aptitude
Whereby his favours may be wooed.

Yet I will take my love for you
And consciousness of service true
To be my advocate, whose word
May likeliest in your heights be heard.

And though I lack the instruments
Of Zoar's starry eminence,
I would remind you, if you wish,
Their stars include the Unarmed Fish.
