Day, James (DNB00)

DAY, JAMES (fl. 1637), verse-writer, published in 1637 a volume of devotional verse, entitled ‘A New Spring of Divine Poetrie,’ 4to, with an acrostic dedication ‘To Mistris Bridget Rudge’ and commendatory verses by H.G. and T.J. The two principal poems in the volume are ‘The Worldes Metamorphosis’ and ‘Christ's Birth and Passion;’ these are followed by some shorter poems, which have more conceit than elegance. From the commendatory verses it appears that the book was a youthful production.
