No vailing ghost shall dare appear To vex with shrieks this qniet grove; rut shepherd lads assemhle here, And melting virgins own their love. No wither'd witch shall here he seen; No gohlins lead their nightly crew: The female fays shall haunt the green, And dress thy grave with pearly dew! The redhreast oft, at evening hoars, Shall kindly lend his little aid, With hoary moss, and gatherM flowers, To deck the ground where thon art laid. When howling winds, and heating rain, In tempests shake thy sylvan cell; Or 'midst the chase, on ewry plain, The tender thought on thee shall dwell; Each lonely scene shall thee restore; For thee the tear he duly shed; BelovM, till life can charm no more, "And mourn'd, till Pity's self he dead.

Then maids and youths shall linger here; And, while its sounds at distance swell, Shall sadly seem in Pity's ear To hear the woodland pilgrim's knell. Rememhrance oft shall haunt the shore, When Thames in summer wreaths is drest; And oft suspend the dashing oar, To hid his gentle spirit rest! And, oft as ease and health retire To hreezy lawn, or forest deep, The friend shall view yon whitening t spire And 'mid the varied landscape weep. But thou who own'st that earthly hed. Ah I what will every dirge avail I Or tears which Love and Pity shed, That more
