TO THE MOST RENOWMED AND VALIANT
LORD, THE LORD GREY OF WILTON,
KNIGHT OF THE NOBLE ORDER
OF THE GARTER, &C.

MOST noble Lord, the pillor of my life,
And patrone of my Muses pupillage,
Through whose large bountie, poured on me rife,
In the first season of my feeble age,
I now doe live, bound yours by vassalage:
Sith nothing ever may redeeme, nor reave
Out of your endlesse debt so sure a gage,
Vouchsafe in worth this small guift to receave,
Which in your noble hands for pledge I leave
Of all the rest that I am tyde t' account:
Rude rymes, the which a rustick Muse did weave
In savadge soyle, far from Parnasso mount,
And roughly wrought in an unlearned loome:
The which vouchsafe, dear Lord, your favorable doome.
