O early lost! in the full noon of life, Down on the dark green grass 1 fat reclind, When ev'ry grace shone in its summer bloom ; And while still Night in ebon mantle clad, Untimely lost! while the rich gift of heaven With silent steps led forth her solemn train, Shone bright to all, and with its value won. 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,

Erewhile thy bliss how rich! how full thy joy! Soft feeling pity, virtue mildly great,

Thy peace untroubled, and thy mind serene! Wit, elegance, and open-hearted truth,

Enamour'd v'er this precious gem you hung, Left us the cold pale corse; the dall remains And drunk in pleasure from its beamy rays: Of worth returning to her native skies.

But in ill-fåteď hour, rapacious Death, O mournful change! How has Death's killing Like the night-felon, stole with silent steps, blast

And quench'd thy diamond's blaze, and left thee Transform'd the roses of that damask cheek, Forlorn, of all thy wealthy treasure spoil'd. (dark, To deadly hue! Those eyes with wisdom bright, No more the smiling hours on golden wings Which, like two friendly itars

No more at evening-walks shall hear the voice That tongue, which with the voice of music spoke, Of conjugal esteem, of piercing sense, While more enamour'd still, PALEMON hung Of friendship, honesty, and glad content, In pleasing admiration, as when men

In busy converse joind. Thy pleasing race, High-favour'd hear descending angels talk, The fruit of faithful love, no more shall meet How has dumb filence with strong magic bound The mother's fondness, hast’ning to explain Its pow'r harmonious, never to awake!

But now this friendly star, which lately shone Whom Fancy fails to paint, and mortal tongue So lovely bright, is horn of all its beanis: But ill explains by words; how are ye fled

The beauteous blazc is set, and chearless night From human right! Thou heavenly picty, Darkling succeeds. Yet know the shining orb Conjugal love sincere, parental care,

It sunk to rise with fresh resplendent beams, Endearing life; kind sympathy, which falls In brighter skies, and shine with nobler fires; The gen'rous tear, and haltens to relieve ; While nature's God, who wak'd th’immortal Good nature, smiling like the golden morn; Has rais’d the splendor, never more to set.
