All other woes will find relief,
And time alleviate every grief :
Meniory, though slowly, will decay,
And Sorrow's empire pass away.
Awhile niisfortune may controul,
And pain oppress the virtuous soul,
Yet Innocence can still beguile
The patient sufferer of a smile,
The beams of Hope may still dispens
A grateful feeling to the sense ;
Friendship may cast her arms around,
And with kind tears embalm the wound ;
Or Piety's soft incense rise,
And waft a prayer to the skies
But those fell pangs which he endures,
Nör time forgets, nor kindness cures ;
Like Ocean's waves, they still return,
Like Etna's fires forever bura.

No fair horizon glads his eye,
No joys to him does Nature yield,

Though both with loud rejoicings ring,
No pleasure does the echo bring ;
Not bubbling waters as they roll,
Can tranquilize his bursting soul,
For Conscience still, with tingling smart,
Asserts an empire o'er his heart,
And even when his eyelids close,
With clamorous scream affrights repose.
