William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
Of Misery
By Thomas Howell (fl. 1568)
 
CORPSE, 1 clad with carefulness;
Heart, heaped with heaviness;
Purse, poor and penniless;
Back bare in bitterness;
O get my grave in readiness;        5
Fain would I die to end this stress.
 
Note 1. From A. T. Quiller-Couch’s Golden Pomp, 1896. [back]
