On The Death Of Dr. Samuel Marshall Analysis

Author: Poetry of Phillis Wheatly Type: Poetry Views: 237

THROUGH thickest glooms look back, immortal


On that confusion which thy death has made:

Or from Olympus' height look down, and see

A Town involv'd in grief bereft of thee.

Thy Lucy sees thee mingle with the dead,

And rends the graceful tresses from her head,

Wild in her woe, with grief unknown opprest

Sigh follows sigh deep heaving from her breast.

Too quickly fled, ah! whither art thou gone?

Ah! lost for ever to thy wife and son!

The hapless child, thine only hope and heir,

Clings round his mother's neck, and weeps his sorrows


The loss of thee on Tyler's soul returns,

And Boston for her dear physician mourns.

When sickness call'd for Marshall's healing hand,

With what compassion did his soul expand?

In him we found the father and the friend:

In life how lov'd! how honour'd in his end!

And must not then our AEsculapius stay

To bring his ling'ring infant into day?

The babe unborn in the dark womb is tost,

And seems in anguish for its father lost.

Gone is Apollo from his house of earth,

But leaves the sweet memorials of his worth:

The common parent, whom we all deplore,

From yonder world unseen must come no more,

Yet 'midst our woes immortal hopes attend

The spouse, the sire, the universal friend.
