Fall of a Wall
Donne, John. The Satires, Epigrams and Verse Letters of John Donne. Edited by W. Milgate. London: Oxford University Press, 1967: 51.
1Under an undermin'd and shot-bruis'd wall
2A too-bold captain perish'd by the fall,
3Whose brave misfortune happiest men envi'd,
4That had a town for tomb, his bones to hide.
