Poetical recreations consisting of original poems, songs, odes, &c. with several new translations : in two parts
To Sir F. W. presenting him Cowley's first Works.

Behold it as a bud of wit, whose growth
O're-tops all that our Isle brought forth:
And may it still above all others grow,
Till equall'd, or out-done by you•
