Belov'd, rever'd, and mourn'd, adieu!
Thy praise let graceful Baden tell,
With conscious pride, to virtue true,
Whilst timidly I touch the shell.
Unknown thy bright meridian blaze,
Thy setting radiance shone on me,
Reflected long — those parting rays
Shall warm the heart that honour'd thee.
Religion, Science, Taste, combine,
Thy votive tablet high to rear:
The amiable privilege be mine,
With lingering steps, to wander near.
To think, as length of days was given,
You honour'd lived, lamented died,
Each day still brought you nearer Heaven,
Your faith matured, your virtue tried.
To weep, but not for you to mourn,
Your race is run, your crown is sure,
To tremble, bending o'er your urn,
Lest I should deem myself secure.
