Thus sadly to the list’ning vale I mourn'd. The fad remembrance only now remains,

O fatal day! thou bitter source of wo! Which fondly whisp'ring what BELINDA was, Which left us poor, bereft of what we priz'd! Recounts to thee, PALEMON! all her worth, O cruel Death! which robb'd the world of joy ; Renews thy loss, and on thy fancy preys. And for BELINDA, comeliness itself,
