Pagina 228 - Your name from hence immortal life shall have, Though I, once gone, to all the world must die: The earth can yield me but a common grave, When you entombed in men's eyes shall lie. Your monument shall be my gentle verse, Which eyes not yet created shall o'er-read; And tongues to be your being shall rehearse, When all the breathers of this world are dead; You still shall live — such virtue hath my pen — Where breath most breathes, even in the mouths of men.

Pagina 230 - ... pen, And first the sound and virtue of my name Won grace and credit in the ears of men ; With those the thronged theatres that press, I in the circuit for the laurel strove : Where the full praise, I freely must confess, In heat of blood a modest mind might move, With shouts and claps at every little pause When the proud round on every side hath rung, Sadly I sit unmoved with the applause, As though to me it nothing did belong : No public glory vainly I pursue. All that I seek is to eternize...
