A Fool's Preferment, or The Three Dukes of Dunstable, Z571
Iíll sail upon the dog-star and then pursue the morning;
Iíll chase the moon till it be noon but Iíll make her leave her horning.
Iíll climb the frosty mountain, and there Iíll coin the weather;
Iíll tear the rainbow from the sky and tie both ends together.
The stars pluck from their orbs too, and crowd them in my budget;
And whether Iím a roaming boy, let all the nation judge it.
Thomas D'Urfey (1653-1723) after Fletcher
