William Cowper

(26 November 1731 – 25 April 1800 / Hertfordshire)

By Heraclides - Poem by William Cowper

In Cnidus born, the consort I became
Of Euphron. Aretimias was my name.
His bed I shared, nor proved a barren bride,
But bore two children at a birth, and died.
One child I leave to solace and uphold
Euphron hereafter, when infirm and old
And one, for his remembrance' sake, I bear
To Pluto's realm, till he shall join me there.
