Sir Walter Ralegh

subduing the rebel feared Swatter would climb yet in commendation
Gubernatoria Virginiae the best-hated man bicause my self lou'd you
in shepheard sorow and disgraces which from Scinthia him the Ocean debard
I yet bite on bit to seeke the plains of Guiana and the Golden City
in the queen's name boldly captain of the guard Matchivel as wont
the law left a traitor that spent his Historie in censoring princes
unjustly shutts up the storye so I take my leaue
