Looking for Renaissance poetry

I can sell wall hanging of Renaissance poetry (I suppose prose would be ok, too) at a Renfaire. The problem is that I don't know much of anything about Renaissance poetry. Any recommendations for reasonably short pieces for a general audience?

At this point, all I've got in mind is "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here" (suitable for office doors) and the witches' recipe from Macbeth.

I was considering My Cat Jeoffry, but 1762 is probably too recent.
