Anne Killigrew Great Poems

  • 1.
    Under the Discipline of an Excellent Person.
    How comes the Day orecast? the Flaming Sun
    Darkn'd at Noon, as if his Course were run?
  • 2.
    Drown'd under London-bridge, in the Queens Bardge, Anno 1641

    The Darling of a Father Good and Wise,
  • 3.
    Whose Lord was Travelling.

    3 Casts o'er the neighbouring Plains, a seeming Frown;
