Effigies R. P. Lanceloti Andrewes Episcopi Wintoniensis. See heer a Shadow from that setting Sunne,/ Whose glorious course through this Horizon runn/ Left the dimm face of our dull Hemisphere,/ All one great Eye all drown'd in one great Teare./ Whose rare industrious Soule led his free thought/ Through Learning's Universe, and (vainly) soughy/ Room for her spacious Self; untill at length/ She found y.e way home: with an holy strength/ Snatch't herself hence to Heav'n; fill'd a bright place/ 'Midst those immortal Fires, and on the face/ Of her Great Maker, fixt a flaming eye,/ Where still she reads true, pure Divinitie./ And now y.t grave Aspect hath deign'd to shrink/ Into this lesse appearance. If you think/ 'Tis but a dead face, Art doth heer bequeath/ Look at the following leaves & see him breath.
