Notes on Epistles Panegyrical
PANEGYRICAL AND GALLANT.
BY JOHN DUNCOMBE, M. A.
WRITTEN IN THE YEAR MDCCLI.
Shall lordly man, the theme of every lay,
Tell how, adorn'd with every charm, they shine,
To these weak strains, O thou! the sex's friend And constant patron, Richardson! attend ! Thou, who so oft with pleas'd, but anxious care, Hast watch'd the dawning genius of the fair, With wonted smiles wilt hear thy friend display The various graces of the female lay ; 20 Studious from folly's yoke their minds to free, And aid the generous cause espous'd by thee.
Long o'er the world did Prejudice maintain,
Or wildly warble in the beechen grove,
Heavens! could such artful, slavish sounds beguile The freeborn sons of Britain's polish’d'isle ?
Our British nymphs with happier omens rove, At freedom's call, thro' wisdom's sacred grove, 30 And, as with lavish hand each sister grace Shapes the fair form, and regulates the face, Each sister muse, in blissful union join'd, Adorns, improves, and beautifies the mind. Even now fond fancy in our polish'd land Assembled shows a blooming, studious band : With various arts our reverence they engage, Some turn the tuneful, some the moral page, These, led by Contemplation, soar on high, And range the heavens with philosophic eye;.
bo While those, surrounded by a vocal choir, The canvas tinge, or touch the warbling lyre.
