H’ hath past through many a foreigne place,
Arabia, Egypt, Africa, Grecia, Syria, and great Thrace,
ind throughout all Hungaria : Where Paul and Peter preached Christ,
Those bleft apostles deare;
In countries far, and neare.
And lately in Bohemia,
With many a German towne ;
He wandreth up and downe :
Of those his lingering dayes, And wonder much to heare bim tell
His journeyes, and his wayes.
He ne'er was seene to laughe nor smile,
great moane; Lamenting still his miseries,
And dayes forepaft and gone : If he heare any one blafpheme,
Or take God's name in vaine, He telles them that they crucifie
Their Saviour Christ againe.
If you had seene his death, faith he,
As these mine eyes have done,
upon : And suffer for his fake all paine.
Of torments, and all woes.
Whereas he comes or goes.

.” This poem is reported to have been written by its celebrated author the night before his execution, Oct. 29. 1618. But this muß be a mistake, for there were at leat two editions of Davison's poems before that time, one in 1608 *: the other in 161 t. So that unless this poem was an after-insertion in the 4th edit. it must have been written long before the death of Sir Walter : perhaps it was composed soon after his condemnation in 1603.
