On Maxwell of Cardoness—-

Bless Jesus Christ, O Cardoness,
With grateful lifted eyes;
Who taught that not the soul alone,
But body too shall rise.

For had He said, the soul alone
From death I will deliver:
Alas, alas, O Cardoness!
Then hadst thou lain for ever!

Extempore------On being shown a beautiful Country seat belonging to Maxwell of Cardoness

WE grant they're thine, those beauties all,
So lovely in our eye:
Keep them, thou eunuch, Cardoness,
For others to enjoy!
