<HEAD>The Chesse Play.</HEAD>
<BYLINE>Very aptly deuised by N. B. Gent.</BYLINE>
<L>A Secret many yeeres vnseene,</L>
<L>In play at Chesse, who knowes the game,</L>
<L>First of the King, and then the Queene,</L>
<L>Knight, Bishop, Rooke, and so by name,</L>
<L>Of euerie Pawne I will descrie,</L>
<L>The nature with the qualitie.</L> </LG>
<HEAD>The King.</HEAD>
<L>The King himselfe is haughtie Care,</L>
<L>Which ouerlooketh all his men,</L>
<L>And when he seeth how they fare,</L>
<L>He steps among them now and then,</L>
<L>Whom, when his foe presumes to checke,</L>
<L>His seruants stand, to giue the necke.</L> </LG>
<HEAD>The Queene.</HEAD>
<L>The Queene is queint, and quicke Conceit,</L>
<L>Which makes hir walke which way she list,</L>
<L>And rootes them vp, that lie in wait</L>
<L>To worke hir treason, ere she wist:</L>
<L>Hir force is such against hir foes,</L>
<L>That whom she meetes, she ouerthrowes.</L> </LG>
<HEAD>The Knight.</HEAD>
<L>The Knight is knowledge how to fight</L>
<L>Against his Princes enimies,</L>
<L>He neuer makes his walke outright,</L>
<L>But leaps and skips, in wilie wise,</L>
<L>To take by sleight a traitrous foe,</L>
<L>Might slilie seeke their ouerthrowe.</L> </LG> </DIV1> </BODY> </TEXT> </EEBO>
