Poetry
Still flush'd with Beatty's vernal bloom, No sweet folicitude to know
Parent of bliss the Queen of Love. For others bliss, for others woe,

A frozen apathy to find

A sad vacuity of mind ? 0! you will know her, she has stole The lustre of my Delia's eye ;

O haften back then, idle boy,

And with thine anguilla bring thy joy!
Admit her, hail her-for my soul
Breathes double life when the is nigh.

Return with all thy torments here,
And let me hope, and doubt, and fear.

O rend my heart with ev'ry pain!
If then stern Wisdom at my gate

But let me, let me love again.
Should knock with all her formal train;
Tell her I'm busy she may wait,

Or, if the chuses--call again.

flow's;
Thy twargirig bow, thine arrow keen,
Deceitful beauty's timid mien;
The feign'd surprise, the roguish leer,
The tender smile the thrilling tear,
Have no no pangs, no joys for me,
So fare thee well, for I am free.
Then flutter hence on wanton wing,
Or lave thee in yon lucid spring,
Or dake thy bev'rage from the rose,
Or on Louisa's breast repose :
I wish thee well, for pleasures past,
Yet bless the hour, I'm free at laft.

Buc'sure, methinks the altef’d day
Scatters around a mournful ray;
And chilling ev'ry zephyr blows,
And ev'ry stream untuneful flows;
No rapture swells the lipnet's voice,
No more the vocal groves rejoice;
And e'en thy song, sweet Bird of Eve!
With whom so oft I lov'd to grieve,
Now scarce regarded meets my car,
Unanswer'd by a sigh or tear.
No more with devious step I chuse
To brush the mountain's morning dews;
To drink the spirit of the breeze,
Or wander midt o'er aching trees;
Or woo with undisturb'd delight,
The pale cheek'd virgin of the night,
That piercing thro' the leafy bow'r,
Throw's on the ground a filv'ry fhow'r.
Alas! is all this boasted cafe,
To Wse cach warm desire to please,

AIL! descendant of the sky!

Hail divinest Poesy!
Suurce of many a heart-felt joy,
Known to me a' rhyming boy,
Come and bless my humble roof
With thy prefence, while aloof
Sorrow stands, and Gricf, and Fear,
Nor cares of businefs interfere,
Lo! I render all my foul
To thy gentle fwcet controul;
Every thought to thec refign,
For all thy pleasures then are mine.
Time was with thee I cross'd the moor,
And wander'd meads and mountains d'ar
And listen'd to the woodlark's song,
As through the groves we past along;
Well pleas'd you heard my firft ellay,
And prais'd, tho' humble was the lay.
And I remember too full well, .
You vow'd with me to come and dwell.
Crme, sweet Nymph, in white attire,
My bosom burns with foft delire,
Once more to clasp thee in my arms,
And riot on thy heav'nly charms.
No more I'll draw back, and afraid,
Refuse' to kiss thee, smiling maid;
But here I swear by Mures Nine,
And by Apollo's harp divine;.
By modest Love's fuperb deli;hts,
His am'rous days, more rapt rous nights,
No other fair fhau thare my breaft.
Or my affectious from thee wrest.-
No-I will ever constant be

If thou will come and live with mo.
