Kitty Fisher (d. 1767) was a famous courtesan, and a model for Sir Joshua Reynolds.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Alas, what boast hath blooming youth, since thus Florella lies,
Paleness o'er her damasked cheek and closed her beauteous eyes.
If fade these glories of her face, Ah, why such frailty trust,
When virtue still its sweetness keeps, and blossoms in the dust.
