EPITAPH on Mrs. Margaret Pafton of Barningham in Nor


By the Same.


O fair, fo young, fo innocent, so sweet;
So ripe a judgment, and fo rare a wit
Require at least an age in one to meet.
In her they met; but long they could not ftay,
'Twas gold too fine to fix, without allay:
Heav'ns image was in her fo well expreft,
Her very fight upbraided all the reft.
Too justly ravish'd from an age like this;
Now he is gone, the world is of a piece.
