MARTIN (MARTYN) PARKER
English poet and ballad-monger
(1600? - 1656)

When this old cap was new
  'Tis since two hundred years.
      - probably [Apparel]

In ancient times all things were cheape,
  'Tis good to looke before thou leape,
    When corne is ripe 'tis time to reape.
      - The Roxbughe Ballads--An Excellent New Medley
        [Prudence]

But all's to no end, for the time will not mend
  Till the King enjoys his own again.
      - Upon Defacing of White-Hall [Royalty]

When the stormy winds do blow.
      - Ye Gentlemen of England [Wind]

Ye gentlemen of England
  That live at home at ease,
    Ah! little do you think upon
      The dangers of the seas.
      - Ye Gentlemen of England [Navigation]
