Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Underneath
 
Underneath this sable hearse
Lies the subject of all verse;
Sidney’s sister! Pembroke’s mother!
Death! ere thou hast slain another,
Learn’d, and fair, and good as she,
Time shall throw a dart at thee.
        Wm. Browne.—Lansdowne MSS. Brit. Museum; but Whalley says these lines are universally assigned to Ben Jonson; and Mr. Wm. Gifford says they are by the Earl of Pembroke, without doubt.
  1
Underneath this marble stone
Lie two beauties join’d in one.
Two whose loves death could not sever;
For both liv’d, both dy’d together.
        Cowley.—Epitaph.
