Pinchbeck Goddess Dedication

To My Brother

"Rudyard, as lesser dames to great ones use,
My lighter comes to kiss they learned muse;
Whose better studies while she emulates,
She learns to know long difference of their states.
Yet is the office not to be despised,
If only love should make the action prized."

-Ben Jonson
