    Seated between the Old World and the New,
    A land there is no other land may touch…
    Where reigns a Queen in peace and honour true,
    Stories and fables do describe no such…
    To her thy sun must make his sacrifice,
    If he will have the morning of her eyes.

    Oracle From A Device. Robert Earl of Essex.
