EPITAPH ON A SCHOOLFELLOW.
1 LOV'D BANKS, for thee I heave the frequent sigh,
2 For thee the solemn tear bedews mine eye;
3 No more thy converse blythe shall cheer my day,
4 Or chase the gloom of anxious thought away.
5 And art thou, dear associate! art thou gone?
6 Long must thy friend his sudden loss bemoan;
7 O'er the cold turf where thy pale reliques sleep,
8 Shall fond Remembrance oft repair to weep.
