'Tis not your faire out-side (though famous Greece
Whose beauties ruin'd kingdomes never sawe
A face that could like yours affections drawe)
Fittes you for the protection of this peice
It is your heart (your pious zealous heart)
That by attractive force, brings great Perroone
To leave his Seyne, his Loyre, and his Garroone;
And to your handmaide Thames his guiftes imparte:
But staie: you have a brother, his kinge borne,
(Whose worth drawes men from the remotest partes,
To offer up themselves to his desartes.)
To whom he hath his due allegiance sworne
Yet for your sake he proves ubiquitarie
And comes to England, though in France he tarrie.
