AN EPITAPH UPON DOCTOR BROOKE, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: A brooke whose streame so great, so good
Last Line: The muses with their teares supply.
Subject(s): Brooke, Samuel (d. 1631)

A Brooke whose streame so great, so good,
Was lov'd, was honour'd as a flood:
Whose Bankes the Muses dwelt upon,
More then their owne Helicon;
Here at length, hath gladly found
A quiet passage under ground;
Meane while his loved bankes now dry,
The Muses with their teares supply.
