1663 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Ben Jonson

Anonymous, "On Ben: Johnson" Recreation for Ingenious Head-peeces (1663) sig. O5v.



Here lyes Johnson with the rest
Of the Poets; but the best.
Reader, wo'dst thou more have known?
Ask his story, not this stone;
That will speak what this can't tell
Of his glory. So farewell.
