Set then your eyes in method, and behold Time's embleme, Saturne; who, when store of gold Coyn'd the first age, devour'd that birth, he fear'd; Till History, Time's eldest child appear’d; And Phænix-like, in spight of Saturne's rage, Forc'd from her ashes, heyres in every age. From th’ Rising Sunne, obtaining by just suit, A Spring's ingender, and an Autumne's fruit. Who in those Volumes at her motion pend, Vnto Creation's Alpha doth extend. Againe ascend, and view Chronology,

25 By optick skill, pulling farre History Neerer ; whose Hand the piercing Eagle's eye Strengthens, to bring remotest objects nigh. Vnder whose feet, you see the Setting Sunne, From the darke Gnomon, o're her volumes runne, 30 Drown'd in eternall night, never to rise, Till Resurrection show it to the eyes Of Earth-worne men; and her shrill trumpet's sound Affright the Bones of mortals from the ground, The Columnes both are crown'd with either Sphere, To show Chronology and History beare,

36 No other Culmen than the double Art, Astronomy, Geography, impart.

UPON MR. 191CKSOY'S CHRONOLOGJE.

Southern the two termes, and limits of Time's race:
That, the creation is; the judgement, this;
That, the World's morning ; this, her midnight is.
