To the Memory
WILLIAM WEDDELL ESQR of NEWBY,
In whom every Virtue
That ennobles the human Mind
With every elegance that adorns it,
A faint Emblem of his refined Taste
Is dedicated by his Widow,
"Whom what awaits, while yet she strays
"Along the lonely vale of days?
"A Pang, to secret sorrow dear;
"A Sigh, an unavailing Tear;
"Till Time shall every grief remove,
"With Life, with Memory, and with Love."
