Unmark'd by trophies of the great and vain,
Here sleep in silent tombs a gentle train:
No folly wasted their paternal store;
No guilt, no sordid av'rice made it more.
With honest fame and sober plenty crown'd,
They liv'd and spread their cheering influence round.
May he, whose hand this pious tribute pays,
Receive a like return of filial praise.
