EPITAPH ON CLAUDIUS PHILLIPS.

1 PHILLIPS! whose touch harmonious could remove
2 The pangs of guiltless power or hapless love,
3 Rest here oppress'd by poverty no more,
4 Here find that calm thou gav'st so oft before:
5 Rest undisturb'd within this humble shrine,
6 Till angels wake thee with a note like thine.
