HEIR THE TRANSLATOUR OF THIS BUK MAKIS
MENSIOUNE OF THRE OF HYS PRYNCIPALE WARKIS.

LO thus, followand the flowr of poetry,
The batellis and the man translait haue I :

Onfructuus idylnes fleand as I couth,
Of Lundeis Lufe the Eemeid dyd translait ;
And syne of hie Honour the Palice wrait ;
Quhen paile Aurora, wyth face lamentabill,
Hyr russet mantill bordowrit all with sabill, &c.
