CENOTAPH

          BY vain affections unenthralled,
          Though resolute when duty called
          To meet the world's broad eye,
          Pure as the holiest cloistered nun
          That ever feared the tempting sun,
          Did Fermor live and die.
          This Tablet, hallowed by her name,
          One heart-relieving tear may claim;
          But if the pensive gloom
          Of fond regret be still thy choice,                         10
          Exalt thy spirit, hear the voice
          Of Jesus from her tomb!

          "I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE"
                                                              1824.
