For MYSTICK LEARNING, wondrous able In magick Talisman and Cabal, Whose primitive tradition reaches As far as ADAM'S first green breeches: Deep-sighted in intelligences, Ideas, atoms, influences; And much of Terra Incognita, The intelligible world, could say: A deep OCCULT PHILOSOPHER, As learned as the wild Irish are, Or Sir AGRIPPA; for profound And solid lying much renowned. He ANTHROPOSOPHUS, and FLUDD, And JACOB BEHMEN understood: Knew many an amulet and charm, That would do neither good nor harm: In ROSiCRUCIAN lore as learned, As he that Vere adeptus earned. He understood the speech of birds As well as they themselves do words; Could tell what subtlest parrots mean, That speak, and think contrary clean: What Member 'tis of whom they talk, When they cry, Rope, and walk, knave, walk. He'd extract numbers out of matter, And keep them in a glass, like water; Of sovereign power to make men wise; For dropped in blear thick-sighted eyes, They'd make them see in darkest night Like owls, though purblind in the light.
