The Robin
There, full in notes, to ravish all
My Earth, I wonder what to call
My dullness; when
I heare thee, prettie Creature, bring
Thy better odes of Praise, and Sing,
To puzzle men:

To sing the Time's uncertaintie,
Safe in my Selfe.
George Daniel (1616–1657), British poet. The Robin (l. 21–30).
