REDOUBTED Knights, and honorable

Dames,
To whom I levell all my labours end,
Right fore I feare least with unworthy blames
This odious argument my rymes should shend,
Or ought your goodly patience offend,
Whiles of a wanton Lady I doe write,
Which with her loose incontinence doth blend

The shyning glory of your foveraine light; And knighthood fowle defaced by a faithlesse

Knight.
