Epigram On A Country Laird
by [?]


[Epigram On a Country Laird, not quite so wise as Solomon.]

Bless Jesus Christ, O Cardonessp,
With grateful, lifted eyes,
Who taught that not the soul alone,
But body too shall rise;
For had He said “the soul alone
From death I will deliver,”
Alas, alas! O Cardoness,
Then hadst thou lain for ever.
