-4- FRAGMENT, Found in the Skeleton Case at the Royal Academy. Behold this rain! (was a skull, Once of ethereal spirit fall This narrow cell was life's relreat- This space was thought's tnyslerioas seat; What beaoteoiis pictures filled thi< spot! What dreams of pleasure Ion); forgot Nor love-nor jov—nor hope-nor fear, Has left one trace or record here. Beneal h this moulcVring canopv, Once shone the bright and busv eve; J But start not it the dismal void, It social love that eve employed— If with no !<wlevx fire it ifleam'd, But the dew of kindness beam'd, The eie shall i)e for ever bright, W hen stars and suns have lost their light. Here in this silent cavern hunt; The readswift, and tuneul tongue; If falsehood's lionav it distaiu'd. And where it could rot praise, was If bold in virtue's cause it -poke, "Vet gentle concord never broke, That lunefui tongue shall plead for thee, When death unveils eiernitv. Sav did these fingers delve the mine, Or with its envied rubies shine ? To hew the rock or wear the gem, Can nothing now avail to tiiein But if the page of truth they sought, Or com for: to the mourner brought, Those hands a richer mead shall claim, Than all that waits on wealth or fame.
