UPON THE MUCH-LAMENTED MR. J. WARR.
by Robert Herrick
WHAT wisdom, learning, wit or worth
Youth or sweet nature could bring forth
Rests here with him who was the fame
The volume of himself and name.
If, reader, then, thou wilt draw near
And do an honour to thy tear,
Weep then for him for whom laments
Not one, but many monuments.
