FOR ONE WHO WOULD NOT BE BURIED IN WESTMINSTER-ABBEY.
HEROES and KINGS! your distance keep:
In peace let one poor Poet sleep,
ANOTHER, ON THE SAME.
UNDER, this Marble, or under this Sill, Or under this Turf, or e'en what they will; Whatever an Heir, or a Friend in his stead, Or any good creature shall lay o'er my head, Lies one who ne'er car'd, and still cares not a pin What they said, or may say, of the mortal within ; But, who living and dying, serene still and free, Trusts in GOD, that as well as he was, he shall be.
Ver. 4. Let Horace]
"Whose verse adorn'd a tyrant's crimes;
And lent th' imperial ruffian aid.”
Akenside's Odes, p. 280. 4to.
