Written in an IVORY BOOK

For the Honourable Miss HAMILTON; To be sent to her MAMMA.

1 No system this of deep devotion,
2 A Book indeed, without a notion:
3 And yet in these fair leaves you'll find
4 An emblem of my tender Mind;
5 Both spotless, ready to receive
6 Each kind impression You shall give.
