JAMES GRAHAM, 1ST MARQUIS AND 5TH EARL OF MONTROSE (THE GREAT MARQUIS)
Scottish celebrated general
(1612 - 1650)

Great, good, and just, could I but rate
  My grief with thy too rigid fate,
    I'd weep the world in such a strain
      As it should deluge once again;
        But since thy loud-tongued blood demands supplies
          More from Briareus' hands than Argus' eyes,
            I'll sing thy obsequies with trumpet sounds
              And write thy epitaph in blood and wounds.
      - on Charles I [Grief]

He either fears his fate too much,
  Or his deserts are small,
    That dares not put it to the touch
      To gain or lose it all.
      - My Dear and Only Love [Fate]

I'll make thee glorious by my pen
  And famous by my sword.
      - My Dear and Only Love [Fame : Pen]
