J. S.

FROM where the Sun dooth settle in his Wayn,
And yoakes his Horses to his fiery Cart,
And in his way giues life to Ceres Corne,
Euen from the parching Zone, behold I come,
A Straunger, straungely mounted, as you see,
Seated upon a lusty Luzern's Back,
And offer, to your Honour (good my Lord)
This Emblem thus in showe significant.     
Loe! louely London, riche and fortunate,
Fam'd through the World for Peace and Happinesse,
Is heer aduaunc't and set in highest Seat,
Beawtified throughly as her State requires.
First, ouer her a Princely Trophey standes,
Of beaten Gold; a riche and Royall Armes,
Whertoo this London euer more bequeathes
Seruice of Honour and Loyaltie.
Her Props are well-aduised Magistrates,
That carefully attend her Person still.
The honest Franklin and the Husbandman,
Layes downe his Sackes of Corne at London's Feet,
And bringes such Presents as the Countrie yeeldes.
The plesaunt Thames a sweet and daintye Nymphe,
For London's good conuayes with gentle Streame,
And safe and easie Passage, what she can,

A Speech at this Ld. Maior's Show.
