John Dryden (Джон Драйден)


Upon Young Mr. Rogers, of Gloucestershire


OF gentle Blood, his Parents only Treasure,
Their lasting Sorrow and their vanish’d Pleasure.
Adorn’d with Features, Virtues, Wit, and Grace,
A large Provision for so short a Race:
More mod’rate Gifts might have prolong’d his Date,
Too early fitted for a better State:
But, knowing Heav’n his Home, to shun Delay
He leap’d o’er Age, and took the shortest Way.



John Dryden's other poems:
  1. To John Hoddesdon, on his Divine Epigrams
  2. The Tears of Amynta for the Death of Damon
  3. On Mrs. Margaret Paston, of Barningham, in Norfolk
  4. Epitaph on a Nephew in Catworth Church, Huntingdonshire
  5. On the Monument of the Marquis of Winchester
