Lines Sent To Sir John Whiteford, Bart

[Lines Sent to Sir John Whiteford, Bart
With The Lament On The Death Of the Earl Of Glencairn]

Thou, who thy honour as thy God rever’st,
Who, save thy mind’s reproach, nought earthly fear’st,
To thee this votive offering I impart,
The tearful tribute of a broken heart.
The Friend thou valued’st, I, the Patron lov’d;
His worth, his honour, all the world approved:
We’ll mourn till we too go as he has gone,
And tread the shadowy path to that dark world unknown.
