Cowley’s Lute, an allusion to Abraham Cowley’s (1618 - July 28, 1667), Christs Passion, an English version of Thomas Master’s Greek Ode. The first lines read:

Enough, my Muse, of Earthly things,

And inspirations but of wind,

Take up thy Lute, and to it bind

Loud and everlasting strings;

And on’em play, and to’em sing,

The happy mournful stories,

The Lamentable glories,

Of the great Crucified King.
