JOHN OLDHAM
English satirical poet and translator
(1653 - 1683)

Pointed satire runs him through and through.
      - [Satire]

Curse on the man who business first designed,
  And by't enthralled a freeborn lover's mind!
      - Complaining of Absence (111) [Business]

Ah, dearer than my soul . . .
  Dearer than light, or life, or fame.
      - Lament for Saul and Jonathan [Love]

Lord of myself, accountable to none.
  But to my conscience, and my God alone.
      - Satire addressed to a Friend [Soul]

I wear my Pen as others do their Sword.
  To each affronting sot I meet, the word
    Is Satisfaction: straight to thrusts I go,
      And pointed satire runs him through and through.
      - Satire upon a Printer (l. 35) [Satire]

Altho' your frailer part must yield to Fate,
  By every breach in the fair lodging made,
    Its blest inhabitant is more displayed.
      - To Madam L.E. on her Recovery (106)
        [Beauty]

And should you visit now the seats of bliss,
  You need not wear another form but this.
      - To Madam L.E. on her Recovery (115)
        [Beauty]

While some no other cause for life can give
  But a dull habitude to live.
      - To the Memory of Norwent (par. 5) [Life]
