To my most gracious

dread Sovereign.

To that clear majesty, which, in the north,

doth, like another fun, in glory rise, which standeth

fixt, yet spreads her heavenly worth, loadfone to hearts, and loadftar to all eyes ;

like heaven in all; like the earth in this alone,

that, though great states by her support doftand, yet she herself supported is of none,

but by the finger of the Almighty's hand;

to the divinest and the richest mind,

both by ari's purchase and by nature's dower, that ever was from heaven to earth confin'd,

to Jhew the utmost of a creature's power; 10 that great spirit which doth great kingdoms move,

the sacred spring whence right and honour streams, distilling virtue, shedding peace and love

in every place, as Cynthia sheds her beams;

I offer up some sparkles of that fire

whereby we reason, live, and move, and be; these sparks by nature evermore aspire,

which makes them to so high an highness flee : Fair foul, since, to the faireft body knit,

you give such lively life, such quickning power, such sweet celestial influence, to it,

as keeps it still in youth's immortal flower;

as, where the sun is present all the year,

and never doth retire his golden ray, needs must the spring be everlasting there,

and every season like the month of may, –

O, many many years may you remain

a happy angel to this happy land! long long may you on earth our empress reign,

you in heaven a glorious angel ftand! stay long, sweet spirit, ere thou to heaven depart, which mak's each place a heaven wherein thou art!

ere

Her Majesty's least and

unworthiest subject,

JOHN Davies.
