HENRY HOWARD, EARL OF SURREY
'Allegory of March: Triumph of Venus' [det.]
Francesco del Cossa, c1470.
TO HIS MISTRESS.1
Printed for the first time by Dr. Nott,
IF he that erst the form so lively drew
Of Venus' face, triumph'd in painter's art ;
Thy Father then what glory did ensue,
By whose pencil a Goddess made thou art.
Touched with flame that figure made some rue,
And with her love surprised many a heart.
There lack'd yet that should cure their hot desire :
Thou canst inflame and quench the kindled dire.
from a MS. in the possession of Mr. Hill.
