The Triumphs of Loue

IF Forreine Nations haue beene
ſtruck with admiration at the
Forme, State, and Splendour of
ſome yearly Triumphs, where
in Art hath bene but weakely
imitated, and moſt beggerly
worded: there is faire hope that things where
Inuention flouriſhes, Cleare Art and her gracefull
proprieties, ſhould receiue fauour and encourage
ment from the content of the Spectator, which
(next to the ſeruice of his Honour, and honoura
ble Society) is the principall Reward it looks for;
and not deſpairing of that common fauor (which
is often caſt vpon the vndeſeruer, through the
diſtreſſe and miſerie of Iudgement) this takes de

And herein the great’ſt pitty will appeare,
This match can laſt no longer then a yeare.
Yet let not that diſcourage thy good wayes,
Mens Loues will laſt to crowne thy end of dayes,
If thoſe should faile, which cannot eaſly dye,
Thy good workes wed thee to AEternity.

So many yeares Thou gainſt, that ſome haue loſt;
For they that thinke their Care is at great coſt
If they do any good, in Time ſo ſmall,
They make their Yeare but a poore Day in all.
For as a Learned Man, will comprehend
In Compaſſe of his Howre, Doctrine ſo ſound,
Which giue another a whole yeare to mend,
He ſhall not equall, vpon any ground:
So the Iudicious vvhen he comes to beare
This powerfull Office, ſtrucke vvith Diuine feare,
Collects his ſpirits, redeemes his howres with care,
Thinkes of his Charge, and Oath, what Tyes they are,
And with a Vertuous Reſolution then
Workes more good in one yeare, then ſome in Ten.
Nor is this ſpoken any to detract,
But all t’encourage to put Truth in Act.
Me thinkes I ſee Oppreſſion hang the head,
Falſhood and Iniury with their guilt ſtrucke dead
At this Tryumphant Hovvre, Ill Cauſes hide
Their Leprous Faces, daring not t’abide
The Brightneſſe of this day; and in mine eare
Me thinkes the Graces Siluer Chimes I heare.
Good vviſhes are at vvorke novv in each hart,
Throughout this ſphere of Brotherhood play their part,
Chiefly thy Noble owne Fraternity,
As neere in hart, as they’re in place to thee.

All great and glorious Maiſters in that Art
Which giues to man his Dignity, Name and Seale,
Prepar’d to ſpeake Loue in a Noble Peale.
Knowing two Tryumphs muſt on this day dwell,
For Magiſtrate, one, and one for Coronell,

The Souldier giues Thee: Peace, the Magiſtrate.

and Maiſter Robert Norman, ioyn’d-
Partners in the performance.
