ON GARDENS
from
THE GARDEN
TO J. EVELYN ESQUIRE
BY
ABRAHAM COWLEY
b. 1618 – d. 1667
XI

METHINKS I see great Dio-
clesian walk
In the Salonian Gardens
noble shade,
Which by his own Imperial
hands was made :
I see him smile (methinks
as he does talk
With the Ambassadors,
who come in vain,
T’ entice him to a
throne again).
If I, my Friends (said
he) should to you
show
All the delights, which in
these gardens grow ;
‘Tis likelier much, that
you should with me
stay,
Then ‘tis that you should
carry me away :
And trust me not, my
Friends, if every day,
I walk not here with more
delight,
Then ever after the most
happy fight,
In Triumph, to the Capitol,
I rod,
To thank the Gods, and to
be thought, my self
almost a God.
