THREE PASTORAL ELEGIES: TO THE READER (2), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A shepheards youth dwelt on the plaines
Last Line: He tooke his pipe and sate him downe and vers'd.
Subject(s): Youth


A SHEPHEARDS youth dwelt on the plaines,
That passt the common sort of Swaines,
By how much had himselfe before
Beene nursed up in Colins lore;
Who, while his flocke, ybent to stray,
Glad of the Sunne-shine of the day,
Wanderd the field, and were abroade dispers'd,
He tooke his Pipe and sate him downe and vers'd.
