* This excellent Lady is lately become a widow, in the East Indies, by the death of Colonel .

1 LOVE's gay Queen, who reigns on earth,
2 Smil'd, Miranda, at thy birth;
3 Pleas'd, she bid thy angel face
4 Beam with each bewitching grace;
5 Round your waist her zone she threw,
6 Charms divine thus giving you;
7 Cupid knelt, and, lowting low,
8 To your sway resign'd his bow;
9 Jove, who saw the temple fair,
10 Thron'd each human virtue there;
11 Pallas then, the work to crown,
12 Made her Aegis all your own.
