UPON SIR JOHN LAURENCE'S BRINGING WATER OVER THE HILLS ..., by             Poet's Biography
First Line: And is the water come? Sure't cannot be
Last Line: For love will creep where well it cannot go.


AND is the water come? sure 't cannot be;
It runs too much against philosophy:
For heavy bodies to the centre bend,
Light bodies only naturally ascend.
How comes this then to pass? The good knight's skill
Could nothing do without the water's will:
Then 'twas the water's love that made it flow,
For love will creep where well it cannot go.
