Yee yowthfull Imps, that lyke 〈on sh〉ews to look
As by strainge sights, reports, or els in book
what chainges chaunce, within the world so wyde
On which, to whet your witts, your selus prouyde
For to behold, how, many play their parts
And guerdon giue, as yee deem of d⌜e⌝sarts
Mark now and I, to yow report will make
Of that which I a, of late did vndertake
To'endyte & wryte, in prose, and eke in vers
which folloingly, I will to yow rehers
wherin yoong yowths, are learned lessons large
By which they may, if lyke chaunce do them charge
That hapt to ⌜mee⌝, the better know to deall
Therin, and so, it may be for their weall
All which to wryte I tooke not long A go
with long discoors, of matters to and fro
what hapned mee, between those matters sayd
which bee not ill, if they bee wyselye wayd
my words therwith, that I to light do send
From beginning, vnto the very end
Togyther with the premisses, fore towcht
Shall follow now, as I the same have cowcht
