CHAPTER VIII
PURITANS AND CAVALIERS II

Will, when looking well can't move her,
Looking ill prevail?
Prithee, why so pale?

Suckling wrote a gay little letter in rhyme to a certain " Dick," telling him about a wedding that he had attended. It is all merry and brignt, but when he comes to talk about the bride, he is fairly bubbling over with fun :

Her feet beneath her petticoat,
Like little mice stole in and out,
As if they fear'd the light :
But O she dances such a way !
No sun upon an Easter-day
Is half so fine a sight.

This gay young courtier, rich, handsome, and talented. led a very full and adventurous life. He spent four years wandering over the Continent, fought for the King of Sweden, returned to London, left the court for a time, but hastened back to aid the Royalist party. After the final victory of the Puritans, he fled from England ; and it is even said that in Spain he endured the most fearful tortures of the Inquisition, but that he finally escaped. All this was before he was thirty-three, for in that year of his age he died.
Richard Lovelace, 1618-1658. Richard Lovelace had a life equally full of change. He, like Suckling, was a court favourite. He, too, was rich, handsome, and talented ; and he, too, stood firmly by the man whom he believed to be his rightful sovereign. For the king's sake he bore imprisonment, and it was in prison that he wrote To Althea, with its famous lines,

Stone walls do not a prison make,
Nor iron bars a cage.
