Many poems are addressed to their authors' mistresses, including To Ones Mistress Thinking Her Selfe Too Younge; To His Mistress Having Stayed Long From Her; and John Donne's To His Mistress Going to Bed. The volume also contains several occasional poems, including one on King James' death and another on a son of King Charles I, and numerous satirical verses; several are dedicated to physicians, lawyers, and usurers, one mocks "a Puritan maide," and another satirizes "Sr Robert Carr Earle of Sommerset."
