And plume your light ffcdg'd wing";
On pinions loft, efiay to fly,
Through humbler regions of the fky,
A moarnful theme tofing.
Alas ! for Stokes ! the good the great!
Who pois'd the balance of tke ftate,
His nble ipirit'b flown ;
Tr brigher worlds has vriag'd its vray,
Where-milJlr beams eternal day,
And biiis bclcvv uaknovrn.
What mufe cm qnal numbers find,
To paint ihe virtues ri his 'mind,
In iiquttte compUte ?
The warrior brave, fam'd ftatefrnan too,
The counlel, weighty, fail and trucV
The patrior, good and great.
When Albion's prince feegan to pui

His conquering ivord, with zeal he d,
Beams from the blade as light'ning ilev.',

Throueh counter-tiles he bfeke j

And drew untarmth d fame.
