| I dare aver|
He is a brave discoverer
Of climes his elders do not know.
He has more learning than appears
On the scroll of twice three thousand years.
| The Discoverer.|
| Crops failed; wealth took a flight; house, treasure, land,|
Slipped from my holdthus plenty comes and goes.
One friend I had, but he too loosed his hand
(Or was it I?) the year I met with Rose.
| The World well lost.|
| Give me to die unwitting of the day,|
And stricken in Lifes brave heat, with senses clear!
| Mors Benefica.|
