Excerpt from The Barons' Wars: Nymphidia, and Other Poems
Fair Arden, thou my Tempe art alone, And thou, sweet Anker, art my Helicon.
Brayton's Anker thus became associated with a poet's life, like Herrick's Dean Burn, or Spenser's Mulla. When celebrating Warwickshire, the middle shire Of England, in his Poly Olbion that shire which we the heart of England well may call - Drayton speaks of it as his native county My native country then, which so brave spirits hast bred, If there be virtue yet remaining in thy earth, Or any good of thine thou breath'dst into my birth.
