Summary Edit

The Image of Irelande by John Derricke, 1581, plate 11

Text:

When flickering fame had fild the eared of marshall men of might,
With rare report of Sydneys prayse (that honrable Knight);
And though the bruite in Iryshe soyle did well confirm the same,
Aswho could say in Inglands claime of Justice there he came;
And to mayntayne the sacred right of such a Virgine Queene,
For seeking of her Subjectes wealth, whose like hath never bene,
The great Oneale, to strike the stroke, in sealing up the same,

And to prepare this noble Knight a way to greater fame,
Amazed with such straunge reportes, and of his owne accord
Came in, protrating him before the presence of this Lord,
With humble sute for Princes grace and mercy to obtayne,
With like request upon the same, his frendship to attayne;
Who promiste then by pledge of life, and vertue of his hand,
For ever to her noble grace, a subject true to stand,

For ever to defend in each respect, her honour and her name,
Agaynst all those that durst deface the glory of the same.
Which things, with other secions moe, redound unto the fame
Of good Syr Henry Sydney, Knight, so called by his name.
Loe where he sittes in honours seate, most comely to be seene,
As worthy for to represent the person of a Queene.

¶FINIS.
