To the Authoress of
Were Shakspeare born a twin, his lunar twin (Not of the golden but the silver bow) Should be like thee: so, with such eyes and brow, Sweeten his looks, so, with her dear sex in His voice, (a king's words writ out by the queen,) Unman his bearded English, and, with flow Of breastfull robes about her female snow, Present the lordly brother. Oh Last-of-kin, There be ambitious women here on earth Who will not thank thee to have sung so well! Apollo and Diana are one birth, Pollux and Helen break a single shell. Who now may hope? While Adam was alone Eve was to come. She came; God's work was done.
