An Acrostic J-ustice to beauty, wit, and sense. (U-nequall'd in the present tense) L-ooks sternly at me, while I sit. (I-mprudent scribbler void of wit) A-Julia's character to hit. G-reatness of mind; a tender heart. O-f softest passions sharing twice its part, R-efinement both in thought and manners too; H-onour, and justice giving each his due; A-ll these rich graces, join'd with thousand more, M-ake Julia lov'd and honour'd more and more. [line] An Acrostic L.ured by a word, a glance, a smile, a nod, O.[x]ur fine affections idolize this God. V.ows oaths epistles oft persuasive prove, E.yes are the sweetest harbinger of love. [line] Beauty and wit must die. Learning will pass away, But virtue will remain forever. [line]
