447. Belinda's Recovery from Sickness
THUS when the silent grave becomes 
Pregnant with life as fruitful wombs; 
When the wide seas and spacious earth 
  Resign us to our second birth; 
Our moulder'd frame rebuilt assumes         5
New beauty, and for ever blooms, 
And, crown'd with youth's immortal pride, 
  We angels rise, who mortals died.
