Sonnet (to The Right Worshipfull, My Singular Good Frend)

I*.

_To the right worshipfull, my singular good frend,
M. Gabriell Harvey, Doctor of the Lawes._

Harvey, the happy above happiest men
I read**; that, sitting like a looker-on
Of this worldes stage, doest note with critique pen
The sharpe dislikes of each condition:
And, as one carelesse of suspition,
Ne fawnest for the favour of the great,
Ne fearest foolish reprehension
Of faulty men, which daunger to thee threat:
But freely doest of what thee list entreat,@
Like a great lord of peerelesse liberty,
Lifting the good up to high Honours seat,
And the evill damning evermore to dy:
For life and death is in thy doomeful writing;
So thy renowme lives ever by endighting.


Dublin, this xviij. of July, 1586.

Your devoted friend, during life,

EDMUND SPENCER.

Greene, and other parties by him abused," &c. London, 1592. TODD.)

The Wanton Boy Was Shortly Wel Recured (epigram)
The wanton boy was shortly wel recured Of that his malady;But he soone after fresh again enured* His former cruelty.And since that time he wounded hath my selfe With his sharpe dart of love,And now forgets the cruell carelesse elfe His mothers heast** to prove.
