For Mary Mowat Muir

Thou princely judge here mayst thou see
What force in error doth remain.
In envious pride what fruits there be
To write the paths that lie so plain;
A double darkness drowns the mind,
Whom self will make so willful blind.

The Victory of English Chastity
under the Feigned Name of Avisa

Thomas Willoughby (Anonymous)
