Didymus

Or lul’d with Grief, or, rapt her Soul to Heav’n,
Or lulled with grief, or, rapt her soul to heav’n,
In Innocence of Thought, entranc’d ſhe lies;
In innocence of thought, entranced she lies;
Her Beauty ſhining ſtill, like Cynthia,
Her beauty shining still, like Cynthia,
Riſing in clouded Majeſty. —
Rising in clouded majesty.
