    Rhodon And Iris. Act III (Ralph Knevet Poems)

    SCEN. 1.Clematis Solo   Well, if I were but once rid of her service,   If I ever serv’d love-sicke mistris againe,   I would feed all my life time on Agnus Castus,   And give all the world leave to let me dye a maid:   I even spoyld a … Continue reading

    SCEN. 1.Acanthus, Anthophotus.An.    Thou speak’st of things beyond beleefe, Acanthus. Ac.    Too true it is, I shrewdly feare,   For every circumstance makes it appeare   That Rhodon in the mirtle grove, last night,   Had private conference with Iris,   From whom (it seemes) he tooke the venom’d potion,   For now … Continue reading



    Rhodon And Iris. Act II (Ralph Knevet Poems)

    SCEN. 1.Poneria, Agnostus.Po.   Bold foolish wickednesse is that   Which walks by day, expos’d to the world’s eie.   Sinne is the daughter of the darkest night,   And therefore doth abhorre to come to light.   Give me that cole blacke sinne that can lye hid.   Under the candid robes … Continue reading

    SCEN. 1.Iris, Panace, Violetta.Ir.    Curst was the wight that did in murther first   Embrue his guilty hands: curst was that hand     Which first was taught by damned hellish art   To forge the killing blade in Vulcans flames:   What raging fury raignes in mortall brests,   That man should … Continue reading

    Funerall Elegy 3. (Ralph Knevet Poems)

    When Hils, and Valleys, wrap’t in sheets of snow,  Did pennance for their summer luxury,  And Winter old unto the world did show,  The Sceletons of trees, muffling the skye  With vapours cold, and strewing frequently  The earth with wat’ry confects, then I stood  On that … Continue reading



    A Gallery To The Temple. Bounty (Ralph Knevet Poems)

    (Lord) all the praise,  Which I can attribute to thee,    Is like a sparke, added to the sunnes rayes,  Or droppe of water, powr’d into the sea;  Yet let thy glory bright,  Vouchsafe t’accept of a poore widowes mite.  I want the skill,  To take thy latitude … Continue reading



    A Gallery To The Temple. The Triumphe (Ralph Knevet Poems)

    The King of Heaven, the Conquerour  Of Earth, and Hell, mounts on  An Asse, which never did before,  Weare bridle, or caparison:  For t’was unmeete Man should bestride,  That Beast, on which the Lord did ride.  The way, where this yong steede did sett  His humble steps, … Continue reading
