Strana 117 - How lov'd, how honour'd once, avails thee not, To whom related, or by whom begot; A heap of duft alone remains of thee, 'Tis all thou art, and all the proud fhall be ! Poets themfelves muft fall, like thofe they fung, 75 Deaf, the prais'd ear, and mute the tuneful tongue. Ev'n he, whofe foul now melts in mournful lays, Shall
Strana 144 - A death-like filence, and a dread repofe; Her gloomy prefence faddens all the fcene, Shades every flower, and darkens every green, Deepens the murmur of the falling floods, And breathes a browner horror on the woods. 170 Yet here for ever, ever muft I ftay ; Sad proof how well a lover can obey
Strana 91 - Yet graceful eafe, and fweetnefs void of pride, 15 Might hide her faults, if Belles had faults to hide: If to her fhare fome female errors fall, Look on her face, and you'll forget them all. This Nymph, to the deftruftion of mankind,
Strana 42 - th' amaz'd, defencelefs prize, And high in air Britannia's ftandard flies. no See ! from the brake the whirring pheafant fprings, And mounts exulting on triumphant wings : Short is his joy; he feels the fiery wound, Flutters in blood, and panting beats the ground, Ah! what avail his glofly, varying dies, 115 His purple creft, and
Strana 87 - And love of Ombre, after death furvive. For when the Fair in all their pride expire, To their firft Elements their Souls retire: The fprites of fiery Termagants in Flame Mount up, and take a Salamander's name. 60 Soft yielding minds to Water glide away, And fip, with nymphs, their elemental tea. The graver Prude
Strana 69 - along the main, Hear how Timotheus' vary'd lays furprize, And bid alternate paflions fall and rife! 375 While,' at each change, the fon of Libyan Jove Now burns with glory, and then melts with love ; Now his fierce eyes with fparkling fury glow, Now fighs fteal out, and tears begin to flow
Strana 144 - between the hills, The grots that echo to the tinkling rills, The dying gales that pant upon the trees, The lakes that quiver to the curling breeze; 160 No more thefe fcenes my meditation aid, Or lull to reft the vifionary maid. But o'er the twilight groves and duflcy caves, Long-founding
Strana 90 - This caflcet India's glowing gems unlocks, And all Arabia breathes from yonder box. The Tortoife here and Elephant unite, 135 Transform'd to combs, the fpeckled and the white. Here files of pins extend their mining rows, Puffs, Powders, Patches, Bibles, Billet-doux. Now awful beauty puts on all its arms ; The fair each moment rifes in her charms, 140 Repairs her
Strana 48 - to fhore, Till Conqueft ceafe, and Slavery be no more; Till the freed Indians in their native groves Reap their own fruits, and woo their fable loves; 4.1 o Peru once more a race of Kings behold, And other Mexicos be roof'd with gold. Exil'd by thee from earth to deepeft hell, In brazen bonds,
Strana 90 - Transform'd to combs, the fpeckled and the white. Here files of pins extend their mining rows, Puffs, Powders, Patches, Bibles, Billet-doux. Now awful beauty puts on all its arms ; The fair each moment rifes in her charms, 140 Repairs her finiles, awakens
