OBSERVATIONS IN THE ART OF ENGLISH POESY: 27, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Faith's pure shield, the christian diana
Last Line: And thick heads do vanish.
Subject(s): Elizabeth I, Queen Of England (1533-1603; Rain


Faith's pure shield, the Christian Diana,
England's glory crowned with all divineness,
Live long with triumphs to bless thy people
At thy sight triumphing.
Lo, they sound; the knights, in order armed,
Ent'ring threat the list, addressed to combat
For their courtly loves; he, he's the wonder
Whom Eliza graceth.
Their plumed pomp the vulgar heaps detaineth,
And rough steeds: let us the still devices
Close observe, the speeches and the musics
Peaceful arms adorning.
But whence show'rs so fast this angry tempest,
Clouding dim the place? behold, Eliza
This day shines not here! this heard, the lances
And thick heads do vanish.
