Writ with Charcoal on a Shutter

OH, Fortune! how thy restlesse wavering state
Hath fraught with cares my troubled witt!
Witness this present prisonn, whither fate
  Could beare me, and the joys I quit.
Thou causedest the guiltie to be losed        5
From bandes, wherein are innocents inclosed:
  Causing the guiltles to be straite reserved,
  And freeing those that death hath well deserved.
But by her envie can be nothing wroughte,
So God send to my foes all they have thoughte.

  A. D. MDLV.            ELIZABETHE, PRISONNER.
