Edward Farr, ed.  Select Poetry of the Reign of Queen Elizabeth.  1845.
 
An Exhortation to Pacience
CIV. H. C.
 
WHEN griping greefes do greeue the minde,
The meetest meanes that men may finde,
Which God and nature hath assignde,
  Is pacience well applyde:
For pacience puts all paine to flight;        5
Yea, pacience makes the hart delight,
And doth revive eche dulled spright
  By reason’s rule and guyde.
