Matthew Prior (Мэтью Прайор)


Wives by the Dozen


O Death how thou spoil'st the best project of life,
Said Gabriel, who still as he bury'd one wife,
For the sake of her family married her cousin;
And thus in an honest collateral line
He still married on till his number was nine,
Full sorry to die till he made up his dozen. 



Matthew Prior's other poems:
  1. An Ode
  2. Love Disarmed
  3. Songs Set to Music: 1. Set by Mr. Abel
  4. To the Lady Dursley
  5. Chaste Florimel
