Overview

Excerpt from Chronological History of the Discovery and Settlement of Guiana: 1493-1668

"Guiana, whose rich feete are mines of golde,
Whose forehead knockes against the roofe of starres,
Stands on her tip-toes at faire England looking,
Kissing her hand bowing her mightie breast,
And every signe of all submission making
To be her sister.

And now a wind as forward as their spirits,
Sets their glad feet on smooth Guiana's breast,
Where (as if each man were an Orpheus)
A world of Savages fall tame before them,
Storing their theft-free treasures with golde
And there doth plentie crowne their wealthie fields,

And there do Pallaces and temples rise
Out of the earth and kisse the enamoured skies
Where new Britannia humblie kneeles to heaven."

Chapman (about 1,600.)
