Epigram On A Country Laird,

not quite so wise as Solomon.

     Bless Jesus Christ, O Cardonessp,
     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.
