Poem by Thomas Gent


Widowed Love


Tell me, chaste spirit! in yon orb of light,
  Which seems to wearied souls an ark of rest,
So calm, so peaceful, so divinely bright
  Solace of broken hearts, the mansion of the bless'd!

Tell me, oh! tell meshall I meet again
  The long lost object of my only love!
This hope but mine, death were release from pain;
  Angel of mercy! haste, and waft my soul above!

Mr. T. Millar has composed sweet music to these lines, and has been peculiarly fortunate in composing and singing some of the exquisite Melodies of T.H. Bayly, Esq. of Bath.
