EPIGRAM: A BURNT SHIP, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Out of a fired ship, which, by no way
Last Line: They in the sea being burnt, they in the burnt ship drown'd.
Subject(s): War


Out of a fired ship, which, by no way
But drowning, could be rescued from the flame,
Some men leap'd forth, and ever as they came
Near the foes' ships, did by their shot decay;
So all were lost, which in the ship were found,
They in the sea being burnt, they in the burnt ship drown'd.
