Our sports and life oft contemned are
By men that <pare

No cost of time, wealth, life, to gain their end,
And often spend

Them all in hopes some happiness to see

But dearly bind
Our hearts, friend Izaak, in a tighter knot.

And this our lot
Here long to live together in repose,
Till death for us the peaceful scene shall close.
