Here rests his head upon the lap of earth, A youth to fortune and to fame unknown;
Fair Science frowned not on his humble birth, And Melancholy marked him for her own.
Large was his bounty, and his soul sincere;
Heaven did a recompense as largely send: He gave to misery all he had, - a tear;
He gained from heaven - 'twas all he wished - a friend.
No farther seek his merits to disclose,
Nor draw his frailties from their dread abode, -
(There they, alike,' in trembling hope repose,) The bosom of his Father and his God.
