Lines, To The Memory Of A Lady

Bring the sad cypress wreath to grace the tomb,
Where rests the liberal friend of human kind,
Around its base let deathless flow'rets bloom,
Wet with the off'rings of the grateful mind.

Firm was thy friendship, ardent, and sincere;
Gen'rous thy soul, to ev'ry suff'rer prov'd:
Rest, sainted shade! blest with the heart-felt tear,
On earth lamented, and in heaven belov'd.

Now will the widow weep that thou art gone,
Who oft her unprotected babes hast fed:
While tottering age shall heave the sigh forlorn,
As slow they move to beg their bitter bread.

Long shall the memory of thy worth survive,
Grav'd on the heart, when sinks the trophied stone;
Oh! may the plenty-bless'd as freely give,
And from thy life of virtue form their own.

Stanzas, Written Impromtu On The Late Peace
"Why, there's Peace, Jack, come damme let's push round the grog,And awhile altogether in good humor jog, For they say we shall soon go ashore;Where the anchor of friendship may drift or be lost,As on life's troubled ocean at random we're tost, And, perhaps, we may never meet more."Thus spoke Tom; while each messmate approvingly heardThat the contest was ended, their courage ne'er fear'd, And soon Peace would restore them to love;And the hearts by wrongs rous'd, that no fear could assuage,At Humanity's shrine dropt the thunder of rage, And the Lion resign'd to the Dove!Heaven smil'd
