Nuncius é cœlo, tandem componere lites,
Fati, descendens, ultima jussa refert.
Tum moriens animam cœlo, corpusque sepulchro,
Nobis ingenii clara trophæa dedit.
Heaven, earth and men, for one thing do contend,
Each one doth Fowler challenge as his own;
God's messenger from heaven, the strife to end,
Descends; and thus his will performs, and's gone!
His soul to heaven; his body to the grave;
To us the trophies of his wit he gave.
