Sir John Davies, The King’s Welcome (1603)

Look over all that diverse troop, and find
Who hath his spirits most jovial and free,
Whose body is best tempered, and whose mind
Is ever best in tune, and that is he.

See who it is, whose actions do bewray
That threefold power, which rarely mixed we see:
A judgement grave, and yet a fancy gay,
Joined with a rich remembrance, that is he.

Mark who it is, that hath all noble skill
Which may to public good referred be;
The quickest wit, and best affected will,
Whence flows a stream of virtues, that is he.

If any more than other clearly wise,
Or wisely just, or justly valiant be,
If any do faint pleasures more despise,
Or be more master of himself, ’tis he.
