    Not Solomon, for all his wit,
    Nor Samson, though he were so strong,
    No king nor person ever yet
    Could ‘scape, but death laid him along:

    Hard-hearted minds relent and rigor’s tears abound,
    And envy strangely rues his end, in whom no fault was found.
    Knowledge her light hath lost, valor hath slain her knight,
    Sidney is dead, dead is my friend, dead is the world’s delight.
    —Fulke Greville (1554–1628)
