Upon The Death Of The Viscount Of Dundee By John Dryden

Upon The Death Of The Viscount Of Dundee

O last and best of Scots! who didst maintain
Thy country’s freedom from a foreign reign;
New people fill the land now thou art gone,
New gods the temples, and new kings the throne.
Scotland and thou did each in other live;
Nor wouldst thou her, nor could she thee survive.
Farewell! who, dying, didst support the state,
And couldst not fall but with thy country’s fate.
