Here on this Figure Cast a Glance
But so as if it were by Chance,
Your eyes not fixt, they must not Stay,
Since this like Shadowes to the Day
It only represent’s; for Still,
Her Beauty’s found beyond the Skill
Of the best Paynter, to Imbrace
These lovely Lines within her face.
View her Soul’s Picture, Judgment, witt,
Then read those Lines which Shee hath writt,
By Phancy’s Pencill drawne alone
Which Peces but Shee, can justly owne.
THE DESCRIPTION OF A NEW WORLD, CALLED The Blazing-World.
