Epilogue by Hugh
Farewell Bright sun,on me thou smiling gazed,
Blooms in the rose and in the diamond blessed,
Likewise gay stars that I so oft did view,
Sparkles in the heaven like sunbeams on the dew,
Above them all I anchor my firm trust,
As the spirit parts all is turned to dust.
Hugh Gordon 12th August 1843
