MAECENAS, you, beneath the myrtle shade,
O Thou bright jewel in my aim I strive
WHILE an intrinsic ardor prompts to write,
YOUR subjects hope, dread Sire––
'TWAS mercy brought me from my Pagan land,
ERE yet the morn its lovely blushes spread,
HAIL, happy saint, on thine immortal throne,
FROM dark abodes to fair etherial light
WHO taught thee conflict with the pow'rs of night,
GRIM monarch! see, depriv'd of vital breath,
YE martial pow'rs, and all ye tuneful nine,
A R I S E, my soul, on wings enraptur'd, rise
WE trace the pow'r of Death from tomb to tomb,
WHERE contemplation finds her sacred spring,
ATTEND my lays, ye ever honour'd nine,
SOON as the sun forsook the eastern main
SAY, heav'nly muse, what king or mighty God,
MNEME begin. Inspire, ye sacred nine,
THY various works, imperial queen, we see,
THROUGH airy roads he wings his instant flight
SAY, muse divine, can hostile scenes delight

"To a Gentleman and Lady on the Death of the Lady's Brother and sister, and a Child of the Name of Avis, aged one Year."

THROUGH thickest glooms look back, immortal shade,
WHILE others chant of gay Elysian scenes,
"To the Rev. Dr. Thomas Amory on Reading His Sermons on Daily Devotion, in which that Duty is Recommended and Assisted."
TO cultivate in ev'ry noble mind
NO more the flow'ry scenes of pleasure rife,
LO! for this dark terrestrial ball
WHILE deep you mourn beneath the cypress–shade
TO show the lab'ring bosom's deep intent,
ALL–Conquering Death! by thy resistless pow'r,
