Refin'd, yet natural, zealous, yet discreet;
Rare union in the critic's mould to meet!
Oft REED, successful, brighten'd Shakspeare's text;
Or, failing, never left it more perplext!
This for his public praise — the friends who knew,
And kept his social virtues full in view;
Who trac'd a life from envy free and blame,
Here give the palm he sought — an honest fame!
