    Eyes and Tears....magnificent, truly. Astonishing work +/- 376 years old. OMG, we're so arrogant in our modern elitist conceits.

    his metaphysical poetry is an example of enlish philosophy presented in conciets

The Garden

How vainly men themselves amaze
To win the Palm, the Oke, or Bayes;
And their uncessant Labours see
Crown'd from some single Herb or Tree,
Whose short and narrow verged Shade
Does prudently their Toyles upbraid;
While all Flow'rs and all Trees do close
To weave the Garlands of repose.
