WRITTEN ON A BLANK LEAF OF HIS POEMS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Once fondly lov'd, and still remember'd dear
Last Line: Or haply lies beneath th' atlantic roar.
Subject(s): Love; Time


Once fondly lov'd, and still remember'd dear,
Sweet early object of my youthful vows,
Accept this mark of friendship, warm, sincere,
Friendship! 'tis all cold duty now allows.
And when you read the simple artless rhymes,
One friendly sigh for him -- he asks no more,
Who, distant, burns in flaming torrid climes,
Or haply lies beneath th' Atlantic roar.
