In a chair in the same garden was written this following


If thou sit here to view this pleasant garden place
Think thus: at last will come a frost, and all these flowers deface;
But if thou sit at ease to rest thy weary bones,
Remember death brings final rest to all our grievous groans.
So whether for delight, or here thou sit for ease,
Think still upon the latter day, so shalt thou God best please.
- George Gascoigne (1534-1577)
