Art
Engrave this Quote Beauty was darkness till she came.
Then paint her eyes, whose active light
Shall make the former shadows bright,
And with their every beam supply
New day, to draw her picture by.

Death
Engrave this Quote All are equal
Death lays his icy hand on kings:
Sceptre and crown
Must tumble down,
And in the dust be equal made
With the poor crooked scythe and spade.

Engrave this Quote The glories of our blood and state

There is no armour against fate;
Death lays his icy hands on kings.
