A Reasonable Affliction

Written by: Matthew Prior | Biography
 | Quotes (9) |
 On his death-bed poor Lubin lies: 
His spouse is in despair: 
With frequent sobs, and mutual cries, 
They both express their care. 

A different cause, says Parson Sly, 
The same effect may give: 
Poor Lubin fears that he may die; 
His wife, that he may live.
