Poem by Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The First Booke. № 35. Wherein true Wealth consists


VVHo's truly rich, we ought not to esteeme
By Lands, nor goods, but by the mind; the title
Of a poore man, being farre more due to him,
That covets much, then that possesseth little;
For he is richer, doth the world neglect:
Then who possessing all, complaines for lack.
