Epilogvs.

THou that art by Fates degree, Or Providence ordain’d to see, Natures wonder, her rich store, jVe’-r discovered before, Th’ admired Lake of Erocoise, and fertile Borders now rejoyce, See what multitudes of Fish, Shee presents to fitt thy dish, If rich furres thou dost adore, and of Beaver Fleeces store, See the Lake where they abound, and what pleasures els are found, There chast Leda free from fire, Does enjoy her hearts desire, Mongst the flowry bancks at ease, Live the sporting Najades, Bigglim’d Druides whose browes, Bewtifed with greenebowes, See the Nimphes how they doe make, Fine Meanders from the Lake, Twining in and out as they, Through the pleasant groves make way, Weaving by the shady trees, Curious Anastomases, Where the harmeles Thirties breede, and such usefull Beasts doe feede, As no Traveller can (ell, Els where how to paralell, Colcos golden Fleece reject, This deserveth best respect, in sweete Peans let thy voyce, Sing the praise of Erocoise, Peans to advance her name, New Canaans everlasting fame.
