Excerpt: ... Quam spectas positam hic, scias figuram Shaksperum ingenuum referre; sub qua, Naturae aemulus, exhibere plus quam Viventis speciem studebat auctor. Et si, quo faciem vigore, mentis Scripsisset manus artifex acumen, Anteiret typus ille quotquot unquam Ccelavit quis in aere linearum: Quod cum non dedit ars egena, lector, Librum hunc intueare, pro tabella. Underneath this marble hearse Lies the subject of all verse, —Sidney's sister, Pembroke's mother: Death, ere thou shalt strike another Fair, and wise, and good as she, Time shall cast a dart at thee.

Humanam quamcunque incauta admiserit, illa Restet in h6c tumulo culpa sepulta, sinas. Nomina si quaeras; unum accipe, nomen Elizae; Caetera cum tacita morte tacenda cubent, Namque locum satius fuerit dixisse sepulchri, In vital qubd erat quam meminisse.—Vale.
