    Epitaph on Thomas Parnell

    by Oliver Goldsmith

    THIS tomb, inscrib'd to gentle Parnell's name,
    May speak our gratitude, but not his fame.
    What heart but feels his sweetly-moral lay,
    That leads to truth through pleasure's flowery way!
    Celestial themes confess'd his tuneful aid; 5
    And Heaven, that lent him genius, was repaid.
    Needless to him the tribute we bestow --
    The transitory breath of fame below:
    More lasting rapture from his works shall rise,
    While Converts thank their poet in the skies. 10
