Arniſh no Briſtows with rich Mine,
Glow-worms are Vermin, though they ſhine.
Should one Love-knot All Lovelies tie,
This One, Theſe All, ſoon cloy and die.
Cupid, as lame as blinde, being gone,
Live One with Him, Wh o made Thee One.

Void exotick Pangs o'th' Brain,
Nor letthy Margent bluſh a Stain.
With artful Method Miſc'line ſow :
May Judgement with Invention grow.
Profit with Pleaſure bring to th' Teſt,
Be Oar refin'd, before impreſt.

Aſſe Forge and File, be Point and Edge
'Gainſt what ſevereſt Browes alledge.
Mix Balm with Ink; Let thy Salt heal:
T'each Palate various Manna deal.
Have for the Wiſe ſtrong Senſe, deep Truth :
Grand-Sallet of choice Wit for Youth.

all Metaphors well-weigh'd and clear,
Enucle'ate Myſteries to th'Ear.
Be Wit Stenography'd, yet free;
'Tis largeſt in Epitome.
Fl
y through Arts Heptarchie, be clad
With Wings to ſoar, but not to gad.
