AN EPITAPH ON MRS. EL: Y, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Underneath this stone there lies
Last Line: In a stone her worth. Farewell!
Alternate Author Name(s): Browne, William Of Tavistock
Subject(s): Epitaphs


UNDERNEATH this stone there lies
More of beauty than are eyes;
Or to read that she is gone,
Or alive to gaze upon.

She in so much fairness clad,
To each grace a virtue had;
All her goodness cannot be
Cut in marble. Memory
Would be useless, ere we tell
In a stone her worth. Farewell!
