(11 June 1572 – 6 August 1637 / London / England)

Epitaph On The Countess Of Pembroke


Underneath this sable hearse
Lies the subject of all verse,
Sidney's sister, Pembroke's mother:
Death! ere thou hast slain another,
Learned, and fair, and good as she,
Time shall throw a dart at thee.

Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
