On the Death of William Springall Levett
[1774.] What though no trophies peer above his dust, Nor sculptured conquests deck his sober bust; What though no earthly thunders sound his name, Death gives him conquest, and our sorrows fame: One sigh reflection heaves, but shuns excess-- More should we mourn him, did we love him less.
