    A wretched soul, bruised with adversity,
    We bid be quiet when we hear it cry.
    But were we burd'ned with like weight of pain,
    As much or more we should ourselves complain:
    So thou, that hast no unkind mate to grieve thee,
    With urging helpless patience wouldst relieve me;
    But if thou live to see like right bereft,
    This fool-begged patience in thee will be left.

For when they happen at a riper age,

And wonder Providence is not more sage.
Adversity is the first path to truth:
He who hath proved war, storm, or woman's rage,
Whether his winters be eighteen or eighty,
Has won experience which is deem'd so weighty.

his own work, may direct his gaze. Behold an equal thing, worthy
of a God, a brave man matched in conflict with evil fortune.

compositus.]
