HINC LACHRIMAE; OR THE AUTHOR TO AURORA: 23, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: And that the easier I may climb the same
Last Line: To virtue clad in constant love's attire.
Alternate Author Name(s): William Boxworth


And that the easier I may climb the same,
I'll build a ladder of heroic wood,
Each step embellisht in the purest frame
Of coral, born in the Tyrraean flood,
That when my wishes have attain'd their will,
And all my thoughts have perfected my art,
That when my cares have rested on a hill,
The only rock of my repining heart,
None may condemn me, for I did aspire
To virtue clad in constant love's attire.
