ON NANUS COUNTED ON AN ANT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: High mounted on an ant nanus the tall
Last Line: Thus did I fall, and thus fell phaethon.


High mounted on an Ant Nanus the tall
Was throwne alas, and got a deadly fall.
Under th' unruly Beasts proud feet he lies
All torne; with much adoe yet ere he dyes,
Hee straines these words; Base Envy, doe, laugh on.
Thus did I fall, and thus fell Phaethon.
