When age grows low and weak, Marking his grave, and thawing ev’ry year, Till all do melt, and drown his breath When he would speak; A chair or litter shows the biere, Which shall convey him to the house of death.
The Temple George Herbert, The Works of George Herbert (London: George Routledge & Co., 1854), 99.
