EPIGRAM: TO THOMAS, LORD CHNACELLOR (EGERTON), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Whilst thy weighed judgments, egerton, I hear
Last Line: T'our times returned, hath made her heaven in thee.
Subject(s): Egerton, Thomas. Baron Ellesmere


Whilst thy weighed judgments, Egerton, I hear,
And know thee, then, a judge, not of one year;
Whilst I behold thee live with purest hands;
That no affection in thy voice commands;
That still th'art present to the better cause;
And no less wise, than skilful in the laws;
Whilst thou art certain to thy words, once gone,
As is thy conscience, which is always one:
The virgin, long since fled from earth, I see,
T'our times returned, hath made her heaven in thee.
