ON HENRY DANVERS EARL OF DANBY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Sacred marble, safely keep
Last Line: Another monument to thee.


SACRED marble, safely keep
His dust who under thee must sleep,
Until the yeares again restore
Their dead, and time shall be no more.
Mean while, if he (which all things wears)
Does ruin thee, or if thy tears
Are shed for him, dissolve thy frame;
Thou art required: for his fame,
His vertue, and his worth shall be
Another monument to thee.
