Edward Herbert quotes- 6 of
Only if loves fire with the breath
Of life be kindled, I doubt,
Having interr'd her Infant-birth,
The watry ground that late did mourn,
Where all the beauties that those ashes owed
Are now bestowed?
Tell us, alas, that cannot tell our grief,
Or hope relief.
Inconstancy no sin will prove
If we consider that we love
making what's new
Ill and good, old, for as we die in you,
You die in Time, Time in Eternity.
