Verses on the Marriage of a Certain Amiable Couple.

1 MAY William and his Charlotte live
2 Free from corroding care,
3 May all delights the stars can give
4 Attend the happy pair;
5 May every tender passion reign,
6 Unrivall'd in each breast,
7 And free from anguish, free from pain,
8 Still blessing, and still blest.
9 May balmy peace their mansion shield,
10 And angels be their guard,
11 May Heaven repeated blessings yield,
12 Their virtues to reward.
