Sinetes passions vppon his fortunes offered for an incense at the shrine of the ladies which guided his distempered thoughtes. The patrons patheticall posies, sonets, maddrigals, and rowndelayes. Together with Sinetes dompe. By Robert Parry Gent.
Parry, Robert, fl. 1540-1612.
In prayse of the Booke.
FAire Philomele her ratishment hath song▪
But Parry rauisheth with musefull tunes,
No soner hath his praise with florish sprong,
With Daphins bosome st•…ft with sweete perfumes,
But forth his nectar-feasting poezie bloomes,
And eke the Delion harper doth lament,
In Passions poore SINETES discontent.
Amored shepheards wonder at thy wit,
And to thy piping lend their listning eare,
And in thy praise the mûses frame a writ,
Therefore I thought my rûder lines to teare,
And skillesse riming bid my hand forbeare:
But little candles giue their glimering light,
As well as torches in the brighter sight.
W. R. Gent.
