With Fifteen-ninety or Sixteen-sixteen
We end Cervantes, Marot, Nashe or Green:
Then Sixteen-thirteen will two score and nine,
Is Crashaw's niche, that honey-lipped divine.
They'll say I came in Eighteen-seventy-one,
And died in Dublin - What year will they write
For my poor passage to the stall of night?
