O N ... -

224,4re the gard’ner, and your work's the plant,
The fruit's the experience of each precious saint,
Which is an antidote for to expel . . . . o
The pois'nous and temptatious /nares of hell;
And hath such peerles virtue, that it can
Inflame some souls, and quench some others then : .
For as the one tasies in a strong desire,
To blow the coal, and not to quench the fire:
So on the contrary, the other who
Doth taffe but only for to make a shew - *
That he hath try’d such things, and find, indeed,
They are but husks on which we seem to feed.
Then secretly this liquid fruit it will
Put out the warmnes, and an ice congeal
In that presumptuous soul who dares to say,
This is not the right path, or heav'nly way,
If we for parallels would seek, we may
Look o'er the Bible, and no other way ;
For there's explain’d by the aposiles there
Such things as are not to be found elsewhere,
Till you in your great works did so excel,
That only to themselves they're parallel;
But if refle&ion back on them we make,
'Twill not a tittle of the glory take
From this your work, but it will rather add
4 /u/ire, in confirming what you’ve said. '
I’ve heard there is a sountain, and some say
'Tis in the confines of Armenia,
Which hath such strength in that close element,
That whosoe'er's by angry fortune sent
Into this sountain, or falls within its brink,
It bears them up, and will not let them sink: . . .
Even such is your commmission ; for whoe'er
Falls upon it, he /*all not need to fear
That seeming danger, which at first may show
A threatning face, or knit an angry brow :
And this clear fountain, if consider'd well,
Would represent more than my pen can tell.
But our all-seeing God is he on whom
1%u daily wait for revelation.
And your inspired soul is so divine,
That 'tis a theme fit for wits more solime
Than my weak genius, therefore I’l/ give way
To those who more refined wits do sway,
And nine /*all only be a soil to clear,
Or make another's verse more fair appear;
And so I wis' you many succeeding days,
That you may write again to God's great praiso, .

And the saints benefit.
