Underneath this sable hearse Lies the subject of all verse: Sidney's sister, Pembroke's mother. Death, ere thou hast slain another Fair and learned and good as she, Time shall throw a dart at thee.
The King to Oxford sent a troop of horse,
For Tories own no argument but force:
With equal skill to Cambridge books he sent,
For Whigs admit no force but argument.
There is no season such delight can bring,
As summer, autumn, winter, and the spring.
If heaven send no supplies, The fairest blossom of the garden dies.

March 10, 1774
