Poem by Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The First Booke. № 33. The onely true progresse to a blessed life


VVHo hath of conscience a profound remorse
For sins committed: and to keepe his senses
Page  14 From all sinister practice, doth divorce
His thoughts from their accustomed offences,
Is in the way of vertue, which will tend
(Jt being continu'd) to a happy end.
