Barnabe Googe(11 June 1540-7 February 1594) was an English poet.
To L. BlundestonSome men be coun-
ted wise that well can talk,
And some because
they can each man beguile.
Some for because
they know well cheese from chalk.
And can be sure,
weep who so list to smile.
But, Blundeston, him
I call the wisest wight
Whom God gives grace
to rule affections right.
