Poem by Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 18. That we ought not to be sorie at the losse of worldly goods


THose things, which are to us by fortune lent,
We Should sequestrat, and to such a place,
Page  27 From whence she may, without our discontent,
Fetch them away againe before our face;
For if we grudge thereat by any meanes:
We doe but vexe our selves, and lose our paines.
