EPIGRAM: ON SIR JOHN ROE (3), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I'll not offend thee with a vain tear more
Last Line: Who wets my grave, can be no friend of mine.
Variant Title(s): To The Same
Subject(s): Roe, Sir John (1581-1606)


I'll not offend thee with a vain tear more,
Glad-mentioned Roe: thou art but gone before,
Whither the world must follow. And I, now,
Breathe to expect my when, and make my how.
Which if most gracious heaven grant like thine,
Who wets my grave, can be no friend of mine.
