Poem by Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 24. A consolation to those, that are of a little stature not to be sorry thereat


None of a little burthen should complaine;
You're cloth'd with flesh, and bones, and not supprest:
A little house a Gyant may containe:
And little bulks great spirits oft invest;
For vertue hath not such desire to find
The stature of the body, as the mind.
