Elegy To The Memory Of An Unfortunate Lady

Rating: 2.8
What beck'ning ghost, along the moon-light shade
Invites my steps, and points to yonder glade?
'Tis she!--but why that bleeding bosom gor'd,
Why dimly gleams the visionary sword?
Oh ever beauteous, ever friendly! tell,
Is it, in heav'n, a crime to love too well?
To bear too tender, or too firm a heart,
To act a lover's or a Roman's part?
Is there no bright reversion in the sky,
For those who greatly think, or bravely die?

Alexander Pope noted for satirical notes or criticism has written wonderful elegy on the unfortunate lady and so, it makes anyone read again and again to understand better!
