What monument should to thy honord name
The love (greate earle) of after age upreare,
When in thy life, thy self didst build the fame.
In fairer for me then ort can frame it heere;
By Virtuous action, and thy noble parts
That hath entoombd thee in our living harts.

Religious truely Church and Countries Staie
To frend most faithfull mild even to his foe:
Good men, and learnd, advancing every waie
In all affliction patient long agoe
In Armes, thy earles sole honor (Warwick) Stood
But thine Great Rich in beeing doing good.
