William Cowper (Уильям Купер)


By Callimachus


At morn we placed on his funeral bier
Young Melanippus; and, at eventide,
Unable to sustain a loss so dear,
By her own hand his blooming sister died.
Thus Aristippus mourn'd his noble race,
Annihilated by a double blow,
Nor son could hope nor daughter more to embrace
And all Cyrene sadden'd at his woe. 



William Cowper's other poems:
  1. Aspirations Of The Soul After God
  2. I Will Praise The Lord At All Times
  3. Retirement
  4. Lively Hope And Gracious Fear
  5. The Doves
