Last Line: And many poems like itself bring forth.
Subject(s): Sidney, Sir Philip (1554-1586)


He left two children, who for virtue, wit,
Beauty, were loved of all, -- thee and his writ:
Two was too few; yet death hath from us took
Thee, a more faultless issue than his book,
Who, now the only living thing we have
From him, we'll see, shall never find a grave
As thou hast done. Alas, would it might be
That books their sexes had, as well as we,
That we might see this married to its worth,
And many poems like itself bring forth.
