Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42).  The Poetical Works.  1880.
Sir Antonie Sentleger of Sir T. Wyatt
THUS lieth the dead, that whilome lived here
Among the dead that quick go on the ground;
Though he be dead, yet doth he quick appear
By immortal fame that death cannot confound
His life for aye, his fame in trump shall sound.        5
  Though he be dead, yet is he thus alive:
  No death that life from Wyatt can deprive.
