Poem by Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 7. That men are not destitute of remedies, within them∣selves against the shrewdest accidents, that can befall them


IF you expect to be of toyle, and care
Sometime exeem'd, hope may your griefe diminish:
And patience comfort you, ere you despaire,
Though both those faile, Death will your troubles finish;
Thus are you fitly served with reliefes,
'Gainst Fortunes most elaboured mischiefes.
