TO HIS TRUE FRIEND, THE AUTHOR, MASTER SHAKERLY MARMION, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: What need I rack the limbs of my weak muse
Last Line: Reads but the title, and thy name below.
Subject(s): Marmion, Shakerley (1602-1639)


WHAT need I rack the limbs of my weak Muse,
To fill a page might serve for better use?
Then make some squint-ey'd reader censure me
A flatterer, for justly praising thee?
It is enough, (and in that cause's right
Many thy former works may boldly fight)
He for a good one must this piece allow,
Reads but the title, and thy name below.
