          I dare aver
He is a brave discoverer
Of climes his elders do not know.
He has more learning than appears
On the scroll of twice three thousand years.
          The Discoverer.

    Crops failed; wealth took a flight; house, treasure, land,
  Slipped from my hold—thus plenty comes and goes.
One friend I had, but he too loosed his hand
  (Or was it I?) the year I met with Rose.
          The World well lost.

    Give me to die unwitting of the day,
And stricken in Life’s brave heat, with senses clear!
          Mors Benefica.
