Alexander Pope (1688–1744). Complete Poetical Works. 1903.


Another on the Same

UNDER this Marble, or under this Sill,

Or under this Turf, or ev’n what they will,

Whatever an Heir, or a Friend in his stead,

Or any good creature shall lay o’er my head,

Lies one who ne’er cared, and still cares not, a pin

What they said, or may say, of the mortal within;

But who, living and dying, serene, still and free,

Trusts in God that as well as he was he shall be.
