THOMAS CAREW
English poet and courtier
(1595 - 1639)

Hearts with equal love combined kindle never-dying fires.
      - [Matrimony]

Nor virtue, wit, or beauty, could preserve from death's hand this their heavenly mould.
      - [Death]

He that loves a rosy cheek,
  Or a coral lip admires,
    Or from star-like eyes doth seek
      Fuel to maintain his fires;--
        As old Time makes these decay,
          So his flames must waste away.
      - Disdain Returned [Decay : Love]

The magic of a face.
      - Epitaph on the Lady S----- [Face]

Loe here the precious dust is layd;
  Whose purely-temper'd clay was made
    So fine that it the guest betray'd.
      Else the soule grew so fast within,
        It broke the outward shall of sinne
          And so was hatch'd a cherubin.
      - Inscription on Tomb of Lady Maria Wentworth,
        in Toddington Church, Bedfordshire, England
        [Epitaphs]

But an untimely grave.
      - On the Duke of Buckingham [Graves]

Then fly betimes, for only they
  Conquer love, that run away.
      - Song--Conquest by Flight [Love]

Those curious locks so aptly twin'd,
  Whose every hair a soul doth bind.
      - To A.L.--Persuasions to Love (l.37) [Hair]

To lead, or brass, or some such bad
  Metal, a prince's stamp may add
    That value, which it never had.
      But to the pure refined ore,
        The stamp of kings imparts no more
          Worth, than the metal held before.
      - To T.H.--A Lady Resembling My Mistress
        [Man]
