Vain world farewell to you. Heaven is my native air
I bid my friends a short adieu impatient to be there.
Two twin children a son and a daugh of the

Happy the babes who privileged by fate
to shorten labour and a lighter weight
Received but yesterday the gift of breath
ordered today for to return to death.
