Richard Lovelace. (1618–1657?) (continued)
 
2861
    Stone walls do not a prison make,
  Nor iron bars a cage;
Minds innocent and quiet take
  That for an hermitage;
If I have freedom in my love,
  And in my soul am free,
Angels alone that soar above
  Enjoy such liberty.
          To Althea from Prison, iv.
 
Abraham Cowley. (1618–1667)

    What shall I do to be forever known,
And make the age to come my own?

    We spent them not in toys, in lusts, or wine,
    But search of deep philosophy,
    Wit, eloquence, and poetry;
Arts which I lov’d, for they, my friend, were thine.
          On the Death of Mr. William Harvey.
2865
    His faith, perhaps, in some nice tenets might
Be wrong; his life, I ’m sure, was in the right. 1
          On the Death of Crashaw.
2866
    The thirsty earth soaks up the rain,
And drinks, and gapes for drink again;
The plants suck in the earth, and are
With constant drinking fresh and fair.
          From Anacreon, ii. Drinking.
2867
    Fill all the glasses there, for why
Should every creature drink but I?
Why, man of morals, tell me why?
          From Anacreon, ii. Drinking.
 
Note 1.
For modes of faith let graceless zealots fight,
He can’t be wrong whose life is in the right.
Alexander Pope: Essay on Man, epilogue iii. line 303. [back]
