TO THE DUCHESSE OF NEWCASTLE, ON HER New Blazing World. Our Elder World, with all their Skill and Arts; Could but divide the World into three Parts: Columbus then for Navigation fam'd, Found a new World, America 'tis nam'd: Now this new World was found, it was not made, Onely discovered, lying in Times shade. Then what are You, having no Chaos found To make a World, or any such least ground? But your creating Fancy, thought it fit To make your World of Nothing, but pure Wit. Your Blazing-world, beyond the Stars mounts higher, Enlightens all with a Cœlestial Fier. William Newcastle.
