CHAPTER V
SIXTEENTH CENTURY - RENAISSANCE AND EARLY ELIZABETHANS

So he dothe vndermynde,
And suche sleyghtes dothe fynde,
That the Kynges mynde
By hym is subuerted,
And so streatly coarted
In credensynge his tales,
That all is but nutshales
That any other sayth :
He hath in him suche fayth.

Little wonder is it that Wolsey cordially returned the poet's dislike.
This harsh, scrambling metre Skelton knew how to adapt to more poetical thoughts. His best known poem is on " Phyllyp Sparowe," the pet bird of a young schoolgirl. It is of the mistress that he writes :

Soft and make no din,
For now I will begin
To have in remembrance
Her goodly dalliance
And her goodly pastaunce
So sad and so demure,
Behaving her so sure,
With words of pleasure
She would make to the lure
And any man convert
To give her his whole heart.

Skelton was a witty man, and many of the " good stories " of his day were ascribed to him. It is easy to see how Henry VIII would be influenced even as a child by the careless boldness poetical ability, and rollicking good nature of this man who was as brilliant as he was learned. No one knows how much of Henry's interest in poetry was due to the guidance of his tutor. Elizabeth closely resembled her father, and must have been influenced
