REBUSE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: That awful name which oft inspires
Last Line: My little wily wanton's name.
Subject(s): James Ii, King Of England (1633-1701)


THAT awful name which oft inspires
Impatient hopes, and fond desires,
Can to another pain impart,
And thrill with fear the shuddering heart.
This mystic word is often read
O'er the still chambers of the dead.
Say, what contains the breathless clay,
When the fleet soul is wing'd away?—
Those marble monuments proclaim
My little wily wanton's name.
