Whitney's Choice of Emblemes 87

Quod in te est, prome

The Pellican, for to revive her younge,
Doth peirce her brest, and geve them of her blood:
Then searche your breste, and as yow have with tonge,
With penne proceede to doe our countrie good:
   Your zeale is great, your learning is profounde,
   Then helpe our wantes, with that you doe abounde.
