VIII. Victory
Epitaph on the Countess Dowager of Pembroke
By William Browne (c. 1590–c. 1645)
 
UNDERNEATH this sable herse
Lies the subject of all verse:
Sidney’s sister, Pembroke’s mother:
Death, ere thou hast slain another
Fair and learn’d and good as she,        5
Time shall throw a dart at thee.
