“Thou art a beaten dog beneath the hail,
A swollen magpie in a fitful sun,
Half black half white
Nor knowstou wing from tail
Pull down thy vanity
How mean thy hates”

She fans her wing up to the winde
As if her Pettycoate were linde
With reasons fleece, and hoises saile
And humming flies in thankfull gaile”
