And ever round that lifeless thing

Where first their clusters grew,
Close as while yet it lived they cling,
And shrine it in a second spring

Of lustre dark and new.


The following Lalin lines were wrilten by Lord Wellesley, for his own

Epitaph, and given to Dr. Goodall, Provost of Eton College.

“ FORTUNÆ rerumque vagis exercitus undis,
“ In gremium redeo, serus, Etona, tuum:

Magna sequi, et summæ minari culmina fame,
“ Et purum antique lucis adire jubar,
Auspice te didici puer ; atque in limine vitæ

Ingenuas veræ laudis amare vias.
“ Siqua meum vitæ decursu gloria nomen

Auxerit, aut siquis nobilitaret honos,
“ Muneris, Alma, tui est : altrix da terra sepulchrum,
“Supremam lacrymam da! memoremque mei!

“ WELLESLEY Kingston-house, January 5, 1842."


" Turo' life on fortune's varied waters cast,
“ To Eton's bosom I return at last-
“ By her in childhood taught the steep to climb
“Of lofty famemto search the 'olden time'-
“ And, led by virtue's pure and fostering rays,
“ To track the ascending path of well-earned praise.
“If glory's beams have played around my name,
And made me soar aloft on wings of fame-
“Nurse of my youth ! the praise be wholly thine!
“The peaceful nook of earth and parting tear be mine!"



This cannot be the sleep of death,

Or sure it must be sweet to die ;
So soft, this holy roof beneath,

On such a quiet couch to lie.

Each gently pressing, gently prest,

To slumber in each other's arms;
This shrinking to her sister's breast,

For shelter from all earth's alarms,

With such entire and perfect rest,

That e'en in sleep she seems to say,
“ I shall rest safe, I know I must,

My Ellen holds me night and day.”
The other with maturer grace,

In dawn of thoughtful womanhood,
Half upwards turns her fair, meek face,

As if an angel o'er her stood.

As calm her brow, as sure her faith,

But more than infants use, she knew
(If right I guess) of life and death,

Of death and resurrection too.

Already now her ear began

The depth of solemn sound to trace,
The thrilling joys that round her ran,

When music filled this holy place.
Yon dark-arched galleries, high aloof,

The glory and the mystery
Of “ long-drawn aisle” and vaulted roof

Already caught her wondering eye.
And she would gaze when morning's glow

Through yonder glorious panes was streaming,
As if in every niche below

Saints in their glory robes were gleaming.

To thee, dear maid, each kindly wile

Was known that elder sisters know,
To check th' unseasonable smile

With warning hand and serious brow.

[blocks in formation]

They speed them home, one prayer they breathe,

Then down in peace together lie : This cannot be the sleep of death,

Or sure it must be sweet to die,
