John Dryden (Джон Драйден)


Upon the Death of the Viscount of Dundee


O last and best of Scots! who didst maintain
Thy country's freedom from a foreign reign;
New people fill the land now thou art gone,
New gods the temples, and new kings the throne.
Scotland and thou did each in other live;
Nor wouldst thou her, nor could she thee survive.
Farewell! who, dying, didst support the state,
And couldst not fall but with thy country's fate.

  1. On the Monument of the Marquis of Winchester
  2. On Mrs. Margaret Paston, of Barningham, in Norfolk
  3. To John Hoddesdon, on his Divine Epigrams
  4. To the Lady Castlemaine, upon Her incouraging his first Play
  5. Upon Young Mr. Rogers, of Gloucestershire
