Reader upon this field of Marble see
How Death and Love Contend for masterie
Vaunting her spoils Death warn's Thee, Here lies
one of her Choice peeces of destruction
For Wit, Forme, Sweetness, So sublime that higher
Her Dart nor Malice ever did aspire.
Love from a Friend (scarse willing to surviue
But to preserve the Other's Fame alive
A Sister so endeer'd in Blood and Heart
She felt the stroke and still weep's for ye smart)
Inform's thee (if Thou'lt help) these Virtues, Fate
Cannot consume, or time obliterate,
But by Thine Eyes embalmed She will lie
Living and fresh till Death Herself must die
Then lend some Tears for mine must need's be spent
Being both the Dead's, and Living's Monument.
