but what they mean; it is not memory but judgment.”

The worst Fate bookes have,
when they are once read,
They’re laid aside,
forgotten like the Dead:
Under a heap of dust
they buried lye,
Within a vault
of some small Library.

But spiders they,
for honour of that Art,
Of Spinning,
which by Nature they were taught;
Since Men doe spin their Writings
from the Braine,
Striving to make a lasting Web of Fame,
Of Cobwebs thin,
high Altars doe they raise,
There offer Flyes, as sacrifice of praise.
