Several poems compiled with great variety of wit and learning, full of delight wherein especially is contained a compleat discourse, and description of the four elements, constitutions, ages of man, seasons of the year, together with an exact epitome of the three by a gentlewoman in New-England.
Bradstreet, Anne, 1612?-1672.
Here lyes the Pearle of France, Parnassus Glory;
The World rejoyc'd at's birth, at's death was sorry.
Art and Nature joyn'd, by heavens high decree
Now shew'd what once they ought, Humanity:
And Natures Law, had it been revocable
To rescue him from death, Art had been able.
But Nature vanquish'd Art, so Bartas dy'd,
But Fame out-living both, he is reviv'd.
