Poem by Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The First Booke. 1. To the King


Great Monarch, since the worlds nativity, 
	No mind, nor body had so divine parts 
To grace the State of Sovrain Majesty, 
	As hath your Royall person, whose deserts 
Soare higher bove the reach of other Kings, 
Then the bright Sun transcends terrestriall things.
