AN EPITAPH UPON A WOMAN, AND HER CHILD, BURIED TOGETHER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Beneath this marble stone doth lye
Last Line: For, tree, and fruit, shall spring againe.
Subject(s): Children; Graves; Mothers; Childhood; Tombs; Tombstones


Beneath this Marble Stone doth lye,
The Subject of Deaths Tyranny.
A Mother: who in this close Tombe,
Sleepes with the issue of her wombe.
Though cruelly enclinde was he
And with the fruit shooke downe the Tree,
Yet was his cruelty in vaine,
For, Tree, and Fruit, shall spring againe.
