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. 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. Epitaph on a Nephew in Catworth Church, Huntingdonshire
