Poem by Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The First Booke. 14. A certaine old mans expression before his death, to his Son


That I am at the period of my age 
	Nor you, nor J, have any cause to mourne; 
For life is nothing, but a Pilgrimage; 
	When we have traveld long, we must returne: 
Let us be glad then, that my spirit goes, 
After so many toiles, to his repose.
