To thee, O venerable shade,
Who long hast in oblivion laid,
This stone I here erect;
A tribute small for what thou'st done,
Deign to accept this small return,
Pardon the long neglect.
To thy long labours, to thy care,
Thy son, who lives thy present heir,
This grateful tribute owe.
Spirit divine ! what thanks are due,
This will thy memory renew,
It's all I can bestow.
