110.WN1.HE1 The Calme in the /same Voyage [p.41]
110.WN1.001 Our storme is past and that stormes tyrannous rage
110.WN1.002 A stupid calme but nothinge it doth swage
110.WN1.003 The fable is inverted, and farr more
110.WN1.004 A block afflicts now then,[sic] a storke before;
110.WN1.005 Stormes chafe, and soone weare out them selus or vs
110.WN1.006 In calmes heaven laughs to see vs languish thus
110.WN1.007 As steddie, as I cann wish that my thoughts were
110.WN1.008 Smooth as thy Mistresse glasse, or what shines there
110.WN1.009 The Sea is now, and as those Iles which wee
110.WN1.010 Seeke when wee cann moue, our Ships rooted bee.
110.WN1.011 As water did in Stormes, now pitch rvns out
110.WN1.012 As lead when a fird church becomes one spout:
110.WN1.013 And all our beawtie and our trim%T decaies
110.WN1.014 Like Courts remouinge, or like eanded plaies.
110.WN1.015 The fightinge place now Seamens raggs supplie,
110.WN1.016 And all the tacklinge is A fripperie;
110.WN1.017 Noe vse of Lanthornes. And in one place laie
110.WN1.018 Feathers, and dust to daie, and yesterdaie
110.WN1.019 Earths hollowness which the worlds lungs are
110.WN1.020 Haue no more winde then the vpper valte of the aire
110.WN1.021 Wee cann nor left freindes, nor sought foes discouer, >(or recover)<[see notes]
110.WN1.022 But meteor like saue that wee moue not houer
110.WN1.023 Only the Calenture together drawes
110.WN1.024 Deere freindes which meet dead in great fishes Iawes
110.WN1.025 And on the hatches, as on Alters lies. [CW:Each]
110.WN1.026 Each one his owne Priest, and one Sacrifice. [p.42]
110.WN1.027 Who liue that Miracle doe mvltiplie
110.WN1.028 Where walkers in hott ouens doe not die
110.WN1.029 If in despight of this wee swim, that hath
110.WN1.030 Noe more refreshinge then our brimstone hath:
110.WN1.031 But from the Sea into the Ship wee turne.
110.WN1.032 Like parboyld wretches, on the coales to burne,
110.WN1.033 Like Bagazett encagd, the Sheapherds coff,
110.WN1.034 Or like slack sinewed Sampson his haire off
110.WN1.035 Languish our Ships. Now as a Miriade
110.WN1.036 Of Aunts, durst the Emperours loud Snake invade
110.WN1.037 The crawling Gallies, Sea iayles, finnie chips
110.WN1.038 Might braue our Venises, now bed rid ships
110.WN1.039 Whether A rotten state, and hope of gaine
110.WN1.040 Or to disvse mee from the queasie paine
110.WN1.041 Of beinge beloud, and louinge, or the thirst
110.WN1.042 Of honour, or faire death, out push mee first,
110.WN1.043 I loose my eand,[sp:sic] for there as well as I
110.WN1.044 A desperate may liue, and A coward die
110.WN1.045 Stagg, dogg, and all which from, or towards flies
110.WN1.046 Is paid with life, or pray, or doing dies
110.WN1.047 Fate grudges vs all, and doth subtly laie
110.WN1.048 A scourge, gainst which wee all forgett to praie
110.WN1.049 Hee that at Sea praies for more winde, as well
110.WN1.050 Vnder the Poles may beg cold, heate in hell.
110.WN1.051 What are wee then? how little more alas
110.WN1.052 Is man now, Then before hee was, hee was?
110.WN1.053 Nothinge for vs, wee are for nothing fitt,
110.WN1.054 Chance or our selues still disproportion itt.
110.WN1.055 Wee haue no power, no sence, no will, I lie
110.WN1.056 I should not then thus feele this Miserie
