Edward Taylor
Am I new minted by thy Stamp indeed?
   Mine Eyes are dim; I cannot clearly see.
Be thou my Spectacles that I may read
   Thine Image and Inscription stampt on mee.
Taylor quotes
Thou sorrow, venom Elfe.
   Is this thy play,
To spin a web out of thyselfe
   To Catch a Fly?
     For Why?
[...]
To tangle Adams race
   In's stratigems
To their Destructions, spoil'd, made base
   By venom things
     Damn'd Sins.
