Virtues And of love for such a character Is erected by a 
husband Who knew her worth And feels what he has lost in 

Tears cease to flow! they but insult the dead
Whose spirit justly liv'd & pious fled
Who, like thee, Anna, sweetly cou'd unite
With duty love, the pleasing with the right;
Who fond cou'd prop a father's failing age
His pains cou'd soothe, his parting hour assuage;
Who, while thy years yet seem'd to ask a guide
For sisters cou'd maternal care provide;
Who still on self scarce spending a desire,
To child & husband gave a heart entire.
O timeless snatch'd from life & love away
But happy thou! Wretched those doom'd to stay,
Go, gentle soul! & a vain world's vain noise
Exchange for transports pure, eternal joys.
