Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Third Booke. № 13. That to employ our thoughts on the study of morta∣lity, and frailty of our nature, is a very necessary, and profitable speculation
BE not from death (by any meanes) a stranger: But make her your familiar friend; that if Page 45 The cause require, it, vilipending danger, You may step forth t'embrace her, without griefe; For the more boldly you intend to meet her: The relish of your life will prove the sweeter.
