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

A frozen apathy to find

A sad vacuity of mind ? O! you will know her, she has stole

O haften back then, idle boy, The lustre of my Delia's eye;

And with thinc anguilli bring thy joy! Admit her, hail her--for my soul

Retućn with all thy torments here, Breathes double life when she is nigh.

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 she chufes-call again.




no, idle Boy ! I quit thy pow's';
U 'Thy couch of many a thorn and

Thy twanginig bow, thine arrow keen, ,
Deceitful beauty's timid mien;
The feign'd surprise, the roguilh leer,
The tender smile the thrilling tear,
Have no no pangs, no joys for me,
So fare thee well, for I am free.
Then futter hence on wanton wing,
Or lave thee in yon lucid spring,
Or take 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 last.

Bue'fure, methinks the alter'd day
Scatters around á mournful ray;
And chilling ev'ry zephyr blows,
And ev'ry stream untuneful flows;
No rapture swells the linnet's voice,
No more the vocal groves rejoice;
And e'en thy song, Tweet Bird of Eve!
With whom so oft I lov'd to grieve,
Now scarce regarded meets my ear,
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 midi 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 show'r.
Alas! is all this boasted cafe,
To lose cach warm delire to please,

TTAIL! descendant of the lky!

1 Hail divinest Poefy!
Source of many a heart-felt joy,
Sunrce of
known to me a' rhyming boy,
Come and bless my humble roof
With thy prefence, while aloof
Sorrow stands, and Grief, and Fear,
Nor cares of bus'nefs interfere.
Lo! I render all my foul
'To thy gentle sweet controul;
Every thought to thec refign,
For all thy pleasures then are mine.
Time was with thee I cross's the moor,
And wander'd meads and mountains d'er;
And listen’d to the woodlark's song,
As through the groves we past along;
Well pleas'd you heard my firft allay,
And prais'd, tho' humble was the lay.
And I remember too full well,
You vow'd with me to come and dwell.
Címe, sweet Nymph, in white attire,
My bosóm burns with foft delire,
Once more to clasp thee in my arms,
And riot on thy heav'nly charms
No more l'll draw back, and afraid,
Refuse to kiss thee, smiling maid;
But here I swear by Mules Nine,
And by Apollo's harp divine ;.
By modest Love's fuperb dehihts,
His am'rous days, more rapt rous nights,
No other fair fhall Mare my breaft.
Or my affectious from thee wreft.-
No I will ever constant be
To none, fair Nymph, to none but thee, {
