  [In the complete Phillis collection of poems were included, together with the poems of sonnet character, numbered consecutively I.ŒXL., an ‘Induction’ in eight (6-line) stanzas, two eclogues—one in twenty-six (6-line) stanzas and the other in twenty (4-line) stanzas—an elegy in fifty alternately-rhyming (5-iambic) lines, and an ode in five (8-line) stanzas. There are only printed here thirty-eight of the poems of the sonnet character, numbered I.–XL.; those numbered XV. and XVI. are omitted, because they have another metrical character, being each twenty-lines long and variously rhymed.]
