COMMENDATORY VERSES TO WILLIAM BROWNE'S 'BRITANNIA'S PASTORALS', by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Were there a thought so strange as to deny
Last Line: Thy youth (herein) thine elders ouer-take.
Subject(s): Browne, William (1591-1645); Poetry & Poets


WERE there a thought so strange as to deny
That happy Bayes doe some mens Births adorne,
Thy work alone might serue to iustifie
That Poets are not made so, but so borne.
How could thy plumes thus soone haue soard thus hie
Hadst thou not Lawrell in thy Cradle worne?
Thy Birth o'er-took thy Youth: and it doth make
Thy youth (herein) thine elders ouer-take.
