AN ELEGIAC THOUGHT OF MRS. ANNE WARNER: MRS. WARNER ARRIVES ABOVE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Behold her ancestors (a pious race)
Last Line: "die, and partake my bliss; we are for ever one."
Subject(s): Fathers; Heaven; Mortality; Waiting; Paradise


BEHOLD her ancestors (a pious race),
Rang'd in fair order, at her sight rejoice,
And sing her welcome. She along their seats
Gliding salutes them all with honours due,
Such as are paid in Heaven: and last she finds
A mansion fashion'd of distinguish'd light,
But vacant; "This," with sure presage she cries,
"Awaits my father; when will he arrive?
How long, alas, how long!" Then calls her mate:
"Die, thou dear partner of my mortal cares,
Die, and partake my bliss; we are for ever one."
