1670 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Abraham Cowley

Richard Flecknoe, "On Mr. Abraham Cowly" Epigrams of all Sorts (1670) 69.



Cowley's not dead, immortal is his Muse,
Or if he be, a Phoenix he's become;
Who unique in his kinde, his life renues
By animating's Ashes in his Tomb.
