Who put on Immortality the 4th of August, in the year of our Redemption


Ask not who is buried here
Go ask the Commons, ask the Shire,
Go ask the Church, They'll tell thee who,
As well as blubberM Eyes can do;
Go ask the Heralds, ask the Poor,
Thine Ears shall hear enough to ask no more.
Then if thine Eye bedew this sacred Urn,
Each drop a Pearl will turn
To adorn his Tomb, or if thou canst not vent.
Thou bringst more Marble to his Monument.
Sacred to the Pious Memory of that rare example of undistained Virtue,
Wife of the said Sir Cope D'Oyly, knt. eldest daughter of James Quarles, of
Romford, Esq; who receiv'd the Crown of Glory, in the year of Grace,

Wouldst thoa, (Reader,) draw to life

The perfect copy of a Wife,

Read on, and then redeem from shame,

That lost, that honorable Name,

This Dust was once in Spirit a Jael,

Rebecca in Grace, in Heart an Abigail,

In Works a Dorcas, to the Church a Hannah,

And to her Spouse, Susanna.

Prudently simple, providently warie,

To the World a Martha, and to Heaven, a Marie.
