Poem by John Clare


The Universal Epitaph


No flattering praises daub my stone,
My frailties and my faults to hide;
My faults and failings all are known
I liv'd in sinin sin I died.
And oh! condemn me not, I pray,
You who my sad confession view;
But ask your soul, if it can say,
That I'm a viler man than you. 



John Clare
