One may have a "Self-conquering Mind"
Metaphor in Context
Just when Polindor's Feast, gave up Life-breath
That wild young King, mere surffetted to death:
Whose humerous Folly sensuall Lust the Realm
Five years (alas) did sadly'st Cloud, ore-whelm.
When's Uncle seiz'd the Crown to th' Duke Orthere
Kind Friend, as was his Royall brother, ere;
Confirming strait to him his Ancient pow'r,
Who humbly Waved all that very hour;
Grown since withdrawn, retir'd (howere, for place
First-rank'd Arcadian Peer, as for wealths blaze,
Honour'd, belov'd to boot) Self-conquering Mind
More strange, Polindor though great heights declin'd:
Convinc'd by's Father's change of late, how bowing
Those lofty Spires; Flostellas self allowing:
Yet was made Duke in her dead Fathers room,
Arplast; Thersames too new Lord become;
Whose owne Inheritance, conjoyn'd to that
Grand portion giv'n, made up good Lords Estate.
