My soul the fruits of dying friends survey;
Expose the vain of life, weigh life and death;
Give death his eulogy, thy fear subdue;
And labour that first palm of noble minds
A manly scorn of terror from the tomb
Death has no dread but what frail life imparts
Nor life true joy but what kind death improves.
