Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The First Booke. № 39. When a true friend may be best knowne
AS the glow-worme shines brightest in the darke, And frankincense smells sweetest in the fire: So crosse adventures make us best remarke A sincere friend from a dissembled Lyer; For some being friends to our prosperity, And not to us: when it failes, they decay.
