Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The First Booke. № 44. To one, who was heavily cast downe in Spirit, by rea∣son of some scandalous speeches, blased forth to his disadvantage
BE not discouraged at calumnies, Which are not (at the worst) but loads of wind; And therefore, with a strong and patient mind▪ Most easie to support, if you be wise; For nat'rally such burthens are but light: Unlesse the Bearers weaknesse give them weight. Thus endeth the first Booke, of Sir THO∣MAS VRCHARDS Epigrams.
