MASQUE AT THE MARRIAGE OF THE EARL OF SOMERSET: A SQUIRE SPEAKS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Since knights by valour rescue dames distrest
Last Line: (great queen) vouchsafe us a divine touched bough.


Since knights by valour rescue dames distrest,
Let them be by the Queen of Dames released.
So sing the Destinies, who never err,
Fixing this tree of grace and bounty here,
From which for our enchanted knights we crave
A branch, pulled by your sacred hand, to have;
That we may bear it as the Fates direct,
And manifest your glory in th'effect.
In virtue's favour then, and pity now,
(Great Queen) vouchsafe us a divine touched bough.
