But, Madam, let your grief be laid aside,
And let the fountain of your tears be dry'd,
In vain they flow to wet the dusty plain,
Your sighs are wafted to the skies in vain,
Your pains they witness, but they can no more,
While Death reigns tyrant o'er this mortal shore.
In death the friend, the kind companion lies,
And in one death what various comfort dies!
Quote of the day
Life is the desert, life the solitude; Death joins us to the great majority.
May 8, 1753
