Epitaphs
Another on the Same
 
UNDER this Marble, or under this Sill,
Or under this Turf, or ev’n what they will,
Whatever an Heir, or a Friend in his stead,
Or any good creature shall lay o’er my head,
Lies one who ne’er cared, and still cares not, a pin        5
What they said, or may say, of the mortal within;
But who, living and dying, serene, still and free,
Trusts in God that as well as he was he shall be.
