Text heard on Sample:
...His helmet now shall make a hive for bees,
  And lovers' sonnets turn to holy psalms :
A man-at-arms must now serve on his knees,
  And feed on prayers, which are age's alms :
But though from court to cottage he depart,
His saint is sure of his unspotted heart.


from Aria in George Peele's Polyhymnia (1590)
