Or that his hallowed reliques should be hid

    Quite, thy erst'while poet...
    Tho'he ne're kno'it.

    Lo' he went well blind, in'visioned, speak...
    Lest ye words, unheaded leak?

    In trouble'd with thy steadied law...
    In health, hath plum'ted to a most slow paced, crawl.

    Great poem, God bless us all-MJG.
