ANOTHER ON THE SAME

by John Milton

 

Here lieth one who did most truly prove

That he could never die while he could move

So hung his destiny never to rot

While he might still jogg onand keep his trot

Made of sphear-metalnever to decay

Untill his revolution was at stay.

Time numbers motionyet (without a crime

'Gainst old truth) motion number'd out his time:

And like an Engin mov'd with wheel and waight

His principles being ceasthe ended strait.

Rest that gives all men lifegave him his death

And too much breathing put him out of breath;

Nor were it contradiction to affirm

Too long vacation hastned on his term.

Meerly to drive the time away he sickn'd

Faintedand diednor would with Ale be quickn'd;

Nayquoth heon his swooning bed out-stretch'd

If I may not carrysure Ile ne're be fetch'd

But vow though the cross Doctors all stood hearers

For one Carrier put down to make six bearers.

Ease was his chief diseaseand to judge right

He di'd for heavines that his Cart went light

His leasure told him that his time was com

And lack of loadmade his life burdensom

That even to his last breath (ther be that say't)

As he were prest to deathhe cry'd more waight;

But had his doings lasted as they were

He had bin an immortall Carrier.

Obedient to the Moon he spent his date

In cours reciprocaland had his fate

Linkt to the mutual flowing of the Seas

Yet (strange to think) his wain was his increase:

His Letters are deliver'd all and gon

Onely remains this superscription. - -

THE END
