Introduction

Here on this Figure Cast a Glance. But so as if it were by Chance, Your eyes not fixt, they must not Stay, Since this like Shadowes to the Day It only represent's; for Still, Her Beauty's found beyond the Skill Of the best Paynter, to Imbrace These lovely Lines within her face. View her Soul's Picture, Judgment, witt, Then read those Lines which Shee hath writt, By Phancy's Pencill drawne alone Which Peces but Shee, can justly owne.
