On an English Lady.
'Mongst Scottish urns, this English matron lies.
Grave, virtuous, modest, loving, chaste, and wise ;
The Poor, the World, the Heavens, and the Grave,
Her Alms, her Fame, her Soul and Body have.
On Mr Alex. Speid.
Time flies with speed With speed Speids fled
To the Dark Regions of the dead
With Speed Consumptions Sorrows flew
And stopt Speids speed for Speid it slew
Miss Speid beheld with Frantic woe
Poor Speid with Speed turn pale as Snow
And beat her breast, and tore her hair
For Speid, Poor Speid was all her care
Lets learn of Speid with Speid to flee
From Sin since we like Speid must die.
