Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 26. The vertuous speech of a diseased man, most patient in his sicknesse
MY flesh still having beene an enemy Unto my spirit, it should glad my heart, That paines, which seize now on my body, may Be profitable to my better part; For though Diseases seeme at first unpleasant, They point us out the way, we ought to goe: Admonish us exactly of our present Estate: and t'us at last this favour shew, That they enlarge us from that ruinous, Close, and darke prison, which confined us.
