|Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocotts Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.|
|Underneath this sable hearse|
Lies the subject of all verse;
Sidneys sister! Pembrokes mother!
Death! ere thou hast slain another,
Learnd, and fair, and good as she,
Time shall throw a dart at thee.
Wm. Browne.Lansdowne MSS. Brit. Museum; but Whalley says these lines are universally assigned to Ben Jonson; and Mr. Wm. Gifford says they are by the Earl of Pembroke, without doubt.
|Underneath this marble stone|
Lie two beauties joind in one.
Two whose loves death could not sever;
For both livd, both dyd together.
