Though left to deplore the loss Of an affectionate Husband At an age in which time Had scarcely diminished Th’attractions of her person She prefer’d The melancholy pleasure Of bearing his name To every solicitation Which press’d her to a second Union. Those pledges of their love Who lost in infancy A Father’s care, when reason began to dawn Beheld in his faithful Relict A Parent Entitled to redoubled affection. A display of her amiable qualities From one Whom Nature had taught to love And mature reflexion to venerate her Might be Suspected Of fond exaggeration.
