There will be death to thee, And thy meek spirit, freed from all its woes,

From which no friendly heart can save, No longer by life's boift'rous tempests driv'n,

How warm foe'er it be. Seens brighter scenes-and, here confin'd no Why carrieft thou, my pretty bird, more,

Thus twittering all the day,
Borne on the wings of Faith, ascends to

And can we mourn the fate that Inatch'd thee

Why tarrieft thou, my pretty bird ? And can we grieve that thou no more art

Perhaps thy mate is dead; here?

Or, falle to thee, perhaps with some
No! pious Hope shall check Affection's tear,

And, upward-pointing to the realms of light,

Tarry not then, my pretty bird ;
Whose mercy, ever-during, ever-bright, Though all thy friends are flown,
Clos'd all thy forrows, bade thy Inft'rings ceare, And thou can't not o’ertake their fight,
And call'd thy soul to realms of endless peace.
