- Youth, what man's age is like to be doth show;
- We may our ends by our beginnings know.
JOHN DENHAM, Of Prudence
- Oh, could I flow like thee, and make thy stream
- My great example, as it is my theme!
- Though deep, yet clear; though gentle, yet not dull;
- Strong without rage, without o'erflowing full.
JOHN DENHAM, The Thames
