An inscription to the side: A constant votury at Shakespear's shrine when Bardoe meditate the flowing love salt tears full oft the artists eyes run oer To much he lives, and Shakespeare is no more! -- Ah cease thy diamond teardrops to diffuse thou warm admirer of our William's muse. The drama's sons enthusiastic cry. While Bardoe lives Shakespeare will never die!
