From The Poetical Works of John Dryden
"Blush, as thou may'st, my little book with shame;
Nor hope with homely verse to purchase fame;
For such thy maker chose; and so designed
Thy simple style to suit thy lowly kind."
From Tales from Chaucer: The Flower and the Leaf, or, The Lady in the Arbour. A Vision.
