HE WAS CAR.
As CAR then Crashawe; or WAS Crashawe CAR,
Since both within one name combined are?
Yes, Car's Crashawe, he Car; t'is love alone
Which melts two harts, of both composing one.
So Crashawe's still the same: so much desired
By strongest witts; so honor'd so admired
CAR WAS but HE that enter'd as afriend
With whom he shar'd his thoughtes, and did commend
(While yet he liv'd) this worke; they lov'd each other:
Sweete Crashawe was his friend; he Crashawes brother.
So Car hath Title then; t'was his intent
That what his riches pen'd, poore Car should print.
Nor feares he checke praysing that happie one
Who was belov'd by all; dispraysed by none.
To witt, being pleas'd with all things, he pleas'd all.
Nor would he give, nor take offence; befall
What might; he would possesse himselfe: and live
As deade (devoyde of interest) t'all might give
Desease t'his well composed mynd; forestal'd
With heavenly riches: which had wholy call'd
His thoughtes from earth, to live above in'th aire
A very bird of paradice. No care
Had he of earthly trashe. What might suffice
To fitt his soule to heavenly exercise.
Sufficed him: and may we guesse his hart
By what his lipps brings forth, his onely part
Is God and godly thoughtes. Leaves doubt to none
But that to whom one God is all; all's one.
