    An Epitaph on the Admirable Dramatic Poet W. Shakespeare

    What needs my Shakespeare for his honoured bones
    The labour of an age in piled stones?
    Or that his hallowed relics should be hid
    Under a star-y-pointing pyramid?
    Dear son of memory, great heir of fame,
    What need'st thou such weak witness of thy name?
    Thou in our wonder and astonishment
    Hast built thyself a live-long monument.
    For whilst to th' shame of slow-endeavouring art
    Thy easy numbers flow, and that each heart
    Hath from the leaves of thy unvalued book
    Those Delphic lines with deep impression took,
    Then thou our fancy of itself bereaving,
    Dodt make us marble with too much conceiving;
    And so sepulchred in such pomp dost lie,
    That kings for such a tomb would wish to die.
