And finl/htlwith inimitable Art) 
The famous Image, I haue fung in part. 

Now, this more pcer-lefs learned Imager, 
Life to his loucly Piciure to confer, 
Did not cx:ra£r out of the Elements 
A certain fecret Chymick Quint-efTencc : 
But, breathing, fcnt as from the liucly Spring 
Of his Diuinenefs fom fmall Riucrling, 
It felf difperfmg into cucry pipe 
Of the frail Engin or this eaithen Type. 
Not/hat his own Selfs-Elfence blcft he brake, 
Or did his TrtpU-Vrnty partake ^T 
Vnto his Work • but, without Selfs-expence 
Tnfpii'd it richly with rare excellence : 
And by his powr fo fprcd his Rais thereon, 
That eucn as yet appears a portion 
Of that pure luftrc ot Cceleftiall Lieht 
Wherwith at firfl: it was adorn'dand dight. 

This AiUm'sfy'mt did from that Spirit dcri «e 
Which made tiie World : yet did not thence depnuc 
Of Gods Sclf-fubftance any part at all ; 
As in the Courfe of Nature doth befall, 
That from the EiTenccof an Earthly Father, 
An Emhly Son ciTentiall parts doth gather : 
Orasin Spring-time from one fappy twig 
Ther fprours another confubftantiall fprig. 

In brief, it 's buta breath. Now, though the breath 
Out of our Stomachs concaue irTueth j 
Yet, of our fubrtance it tranfporteth nought: 
Onely it fecmeth to be limply fraught 
And ro retain the purer qualities ^ 
Ofth' inward place whence it deriued is. 

Infpired by that Breath, this Breath defire 
I to defcribc. Whofodoth not admire 
His fpirit, is fprightlefs • and his fenfe is oafl, 
Who hath no fenfe of that admired Blaft. 
Yec wot I well, that as the Ey perceiucs 
All but it felf, even fo our Soulc conceiues 
All faue her own fclfs-Eflence ; but, the end 
Of her own greatnes cannot comprehend. 
Yet as a found Ey, void of vicious matter, 
Sees ( in a fort) it felf in Glafsor Water : 
So, in her facrcd Works (as in a Glafs) 
Our Soule ( almoft ) may fee her glorious face. 

The boiftrous Winde, that rents with roaring Wafts 
The lofty Pines, and to the Welkin cafts 
Millions of Mountains from the watery World

Which, richly-di vers, makes vs differ more 
From dull, dumb wretches that in Defarts roan 

Now, that Buls bellow (if that zny fay) 
That Lions roar, and /lothfuii AHes bray, 
Now lowe, now lowd 5 and by fuch languages 
Di(tin% fecm to mew their courages : 
Thof ■ arc not words, but bare cxprcilions 
Of violent fits of certain pallions : 
Confufed li^nes of foi rw, or annoy, 
Of hunger, thirft, of anger, louc, or loy. 

And fo I fay ofall the winged quicrs, 
Which mornly warble, on green trembling briers, 
Ear-tickling tunes : for,though they fecm to prattle 
A part by payrs,and three to three to tattle ; 
To winde their voycea hundred thoufand w 
In curious defcant of a thoufar d lay es : 
T'haue taught J'/'flik, in their School, his skill; 
T heir founds want fenfe j their notes arc word-lefs flill 
Their fong, repeated thoufand times a-day, 
As dumb difcourfc, flies in-thc W °ds away. 

But, only Man can ulke of his Creator, 
Of Heav'n, and earth, and fire,and ayr, and water, 
Of lufticc, Temperance, Wifdom, Fortitude, 
In choifefweet tearms, that various fenfe include. 
And not in one folc tongue his thoughts difluiKlcrj 
But like to StdUger, our ages wonder, 

The Lcarned's Sun : who eloquently can, 
Speak Spaniih, French, Italian, Nubian, 
Dutch, Chaldec, Sy riak, Englifh , Arabik, 
(Befides) the Perfian, Hebrew, Latin, Greek, 
O rich quick fpirit ! O wits Chameleon ! 
Which any Authors colour can put on : 
Great lultm Son, and Syluim worthy brother, 
Th' immortall grace of Gdfcty^ their mother. 

And, as forIayes,that in their wycry gail 
Can ask for victuals, and vnviftual'd rail • 
Who, daring vs for eloquences meed, 
Can plain pronounce the holy Chriftian Creed, 
Say the Lords Prayer,and oft repeat itall, 
And name by name a good great houfliold call : 
1 n are like that voice, which (by ourvoyce begot) 
I rom hollow vale babbles it wots not what : 

And dumbly peak, their owne fpeech nof conceiving,

Now, when I note, howth' Hebrew brevity, 
Even with few words exprcflcth happily 
I )apeft conceits 5 and leads the hearing part 
Through all the clofets of the mazy hart : 
Better then Greek with her Sjnommdes, 

: Bpithets, and fine dMetdpbordes, 

Her apt Coniundtions,Tenfes, Moods,and Cafes 
And many othcrmuch eftecmed graces : 

When I remember, how the RaUnm fct 
Out of the facrcd Hebrew Alphabet 
All that our faith belecues, or eyes behold; 
That in the Law the Arts are all inrold : 
-Whether (with curious pain) we dotranfpbit 
Her letters turn'd in many-various fort 
(For, as in ciphering, th' onely tranfpoitation 
Of figures, ftill varies their valuation : 
So th' Andgram ftrengthens or flacks a name, 
Giuingafecrctuviftvnto the fame : ) 
Or whether we(cuen as in grofs)bcfk>wing 
Thcnumbers.which/rom one words letters flowing, 
Vnfold a fecret - and that word again 
Another of like number doth contain : 
Whether one letter for a word be put j 
Orallafcntencein one word belhut 
As *Aypts /ilcncc fealcd-vp (myflcrious^ 
In one Character a long fentence ferious. 

When I obferue, that from the IndUn Dawnine,

And from hot Tdmbtt, to the Sea TdrtarUn,

Put in his place : and he that, ^daiiath 
The general! Deluge, faw the World di/treft, 
In true interpretation, foundeth Reft. 
To th' Hebrew Tongue (how- ever Grate do grudge) 
Thefacrcd right of Elderftnp I iudge. 
I AJ1 hail, therefore, O fempirernall fpring 
Of fpiriruall pictures J fpcech of Heav'ns high King y 
Mother, and Miftrcfs, of all Tongues the Prime : 
Which (pure) haft part fuch vzdt deep guJrs of Time a 
Which haft no word burVcighs, whole Elements 
Flowc with hid fenfe,thy points with Sacraments. 
O facred DuUfi ! in thee the names 
Of Men, Towns, Countries regifter their fames 
In brief abridgements : and the names of Birds, 
Of Water-guefts,and Forreft-hanting H cards, 
Are open Books where every man might read 
Their natures ftory ; till th' Hcav n-fhaker dread, 
In his iuft wrath, the flaming fword had fct^ 
The paflage into Paradifeto let. 

For, AtUm then (in figne of maftry) giving 
Peculiar names vnto all creatures hving, 
When in a generall mufter ranged right, 
They marcht by couples in his awfull fight, 
He framed them fo rit, that learned ears 
Bearing the foul the found, the maniails bears, 
Wherewith th' All- forming voyce adorned rait 
Th' inhabitants of Sea, and Earth, and Ayr. 
And, for each body a<2s,or fuffers ought, 
Having made Nowns, his Verbs he aUb wrought a 
And then, the more t'inrich his fpcech, he brings 
Small particles, which ftand in lieu of firings 
The maftct members fitly to combine 
(As two great boards, a little glew doth ioyn) 
And fcrue as plumes, which ever dancing light 
Deck the proud crcfts of helmets burnifht bi ight : 
Henges to mantles ; ears, and rings to vcfTcls?

The Schism e. 

A -ainft one mip,that skips from ftan to ground, 
From wauc to wane ( like *ff«m r windy bound ) 


While the fad Pilot, ona foamy Mount 
Thinks from the Pole to fee Hells pit profound, 
Seems from lo we Hell to fee the loftic Pol 
And/ecling toes within and eck without, 
As many waues,fomany deaths doth doubt. 
The billows,bcating round about the (hip, 
Vnchaufc her kcel,and all her Teams vnrip . 
Whereby the watcrs,cntring vncontroul'd, 
Ebbing abroad,yct flowe apace in hold : 
For cucry Tun the plied Pump doth rid, 
A (loud breaks in ■ the Matter mattered 
With dread and danger ( threaming cuery-way >

Which wauc to meet,or which fait furge to flic 5 
So yeclds his charge,in Sea to liuc or die. 

As, many Cannons,'gainft a Cattle bent, 
Make many hoIcs,and much the 1 ampire rent, 
And lhakc the wall,but yet the latcft lhock 
Of fTrc-wingd bullets batters down the Rock : 
So,many inounrs, that mutter 'gainttrhis SaiJ 3 
With roaring rage do this poor ttiip aflail j 
But ye: the latt( with foaming fury fwoln, 
With boittrous blatts of angry tempetts boln ) 
Springs the main-matt: the matt with boyftrous falJ 
Breaks down the deck,and fore affrights them all. 
Pale ldol-like,onc ftands with arms a-crofs : 

One moans himfclf: one mourns his childrcnslofs: 
One,morethan Dcatb,this form of Death affrights: 
Another calls on Hcav'nsvn-vicwcd Lights : 
One/fore his eyes his Ladies looks beholds : 
Anothei ,thus his deadly fear vnfolds : 
Curft thirft of gold ! O how thou caufeft care I
