Why So Pale and Wan, Fond Lover?

The in-no-way-amusingly named Suckling Chapel, in the medieval St Andrews Church, Norwich. The second largest church in the city, there is plenty to see here, but I was drawn mainly to the grand monument to politician Sir John Suckling (1569-1627) and his first wife, Lady Martha.

(Sir John's son, another Sir John Suckling (1609-1642), penned the poem 'Why So Pale and Wan, Fond Lover?').
