Health to my dear, and long unbroken years,
By storms unruffled, and unstained by tears.
Winged by new joys, may each white minute fly,
Spring on her cheek and sunshine in her eye.
O'er that dear breast where love and pity spring,
May peace eternal spread her downy wing.
Sweet beaming hope her path illumine still,
And fair ideas all her fancy fill.
