TO HIS WORTHY KINSMAN, MR. STEPHEN|
NOR is my number full till I inscribe
Thee, sprightly Soame, one of my righteous tribe ;
A tribe of one lip, leaven and of one
Civil behaviour, and religion ;
A stock of saints, where ev'ry one doth wear
A stole of white, and canonised here ;
Among which holies be thou ever known,
Brave kinsman, mark'd out with the whiter stone
Which seals thy glory, since I do prefer
Thee here in my eternal calender.
