Poem by Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 25. That too much bewailing, and griefe is to be avoided at Funerals, to one lamenting the decease of a friend


IT were more fit, that you relinquish'd orrow,
Then that you should be left by it; that may,
Page  50 What ever may be done, be done to morrow:
And what to morrow may be done to day;
We should therefore, as soon's we can desist
From that, wherein we cannot long insist.
