Poem by Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The Third Booke. 38. How to make all the world peaceable


If so in evry man the flesh would dwell 
	At concord with the spirit, that it cease 
Against its soverainty to rebell, 
	The universall world would be at peace; 
For if there were no avarice, no hate: 
No pride, nor lust, there could be no debate.
