ON THIS DEATH OF
(IJY A YOUNO LADY.)
What means that Bolemn dirge that Btrlkes my ear?
What means theme mournful Bounds why shines the tear?
Why toll the bclla the awful knell of fate?
Ah! why those sighs that do my fancy sate!
Where'er I turn, the general gloom appears,
Those mourning badges fill my soul with tears;
Hark! Yonder rueful noise! 'tis done! 'tis done
The silent tomb invades our WASHINGTON!
M'8t vlrtures exalted, yield their breath?
Most bright perfection find relief in death.?
Must mortal greatness fall? a glorious name!
What then is riches, honour and true fame?
The august chief, the father and the friend,
The generous patriot -Let the muse commend;
Columbia's glory and Mount Vernon's pride.
There lies cnshrln'd with numbers at his side!
There let the sigh respondent from the breast,
leave in rich numbers! Let the glowing zest,
Of tears refulgent beam with grateful love; ,
And the sable mourning our affliction prove,
Weep! kindred mortals weep! no more you'll iind,
A man so just, so pure, so firm in mind;
Rejoicing Angels, hail the heavenly sage!
Celestial Spirits greet the wonder of the Age!
