The extract below is from an elegy on one Coravin, who remains unidentified. Nothing is known of Collins; his invocation of Spenser is conventional.
From The Teares of Love: or Cupids Progresse (1615), p. 47:
Sidney and Spencer, be you aye renoun'd:
No time hath pow'r your Pastorals to confound.
Drayton, and all the rest that wrote of yore,
Adorning time with your delicious store,
Be euer honor'd, and (till th'end of time)
On Fames peart tongue be praised for your Rimes.
You worthy ones, oh, do not you disdaine
My mournfull Muse, that in this humble vaine
Dares for to sing, considering these are dayes,
In which some Criticks will the best dispraise:
But pardon me, should all be silent; then
Who should praise Vertue, or check Vice in men?
