(8) Not wondering at the present, nor the past, For thy records,

(7) Thou art slave to Fate, chance, kings, and desperate men, And dost with poison, war and sickness dwell.
(8) And poppy, or charms can make us sleep as well, And better than thy stroke; why swell’st thou then?

(10) And Death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die.
