She ne'er could forgive, for fhe ne'er had refented ; As fhe ne'er had deny'd, fofhe never repented. She lov'd the whole Species, but fome had diftinguifh'd ; But Time, and much Thought, had all Paflion cxtinguifh'd. Tho' not fond of her Station, content with her Lot ; A Favour receiv'd fhe had never forgot. She rejoie'd in the Good that her Neighbour poflefs'd ; And Piety, Purity, Truth fhe profefs'd. She liv'd in much Peace, but ne'er courted Pleafure ; Her Book, and her Pen, had her Moments of Leifure. Pleas'd with Life, Fond of Health, yet fearlcfs of Death ; Believing, ihe loft not her Soul with her Breath.
