A NAMELESS EPITAPH (1), by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: This sentence have I left behind
Last Line: Are god's worst portion to mankind.
Subject(s): Epitaphs

THIS sentence have I left behind:
An aching body, and a mind
Not wholly clear, nor wholly blind,
Too keen to rest, too weak to find,
That travails sore, and brings forth wind,
Are God's worst portion to mankind.
