Poem by Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 31. A temperate Dyet, is the best Physicke


To keepe a moderation in our Dyet, 
	Is the chiefe meane, to be of health assured; 
For nothing sickens so, as too much ryot: 
	And Feasts kill more, then Galen ever cured, 
Nor is the Physicke, should so fully please us; 
Others expell: but this prveens Diseases.
