Strana 30 - But drops her pinions, and unfurls her wings ; On downy beds the weary dancers lie, And fleep's filk cords tie down each drowfy eye ; *• Delightful dreams their pleafing fports reftore, And ev'n in fleep they feem to dance once more. And now the work...
Strana 55 - Myriads of creatures ftill fucceffive rife ; Scarce buds a leaf, or fprings the vileft weed, But little flocks upon its verdure feed ; No fruit our palate courts, or flow'r our fmell, But on its fragrant bofom nations dwell, All form'd with proper faculties to...
Strana 19 - An a&ive body and ambitious mind, In nimble Rigadoons he may advance, Or in the Louvre's flow majeftic dance ; If thefe he fears to reach, with eafy pace Let him the Minuet's circling mazes trace : Is this too hard ? this too...
Strana 66 - O could I flow like thee! and make thy stream My great example, as it is my theme ! Tho
Strana 54 - Hence youth good-humour, frugal craft old-age, Warm politicians term It party-rage, True churchmen zeal right orthodox ; and hence Fools think it gravity, and wits pretence ; To conftancy alone fond lovers join it, And maids unafk'd to chaftity confine it.

As well at noon we may obftruct our fight, Then doubt if fuch a thing exifts as light ; For no lefs plain wou'd nature's law appear As the meridian fun unchang'd,...
Strana 48 - Tis thus, my Lord, I free from ftrife Spend an inglorious country life ; Thefe are the joys I ftiil purfue, When abfent from the town and you ; Thus pafs long fummer funs away, Bufily idle, calmly gay : Nor great, nor mean, nor rich, nor poor, Not having much...
Strana 9 - O'er all the plains unnumber'd glories rife, And a new bright creation charms our eyes ; Till Zephyr breathes, then all at once decay The fplendid fcenes, their glories fade away, The fields refign the beauties not their own, And all their fnowy charms run trickling down. Dare I in fuch momentous points advife, I mould condemn the hoop's enormous fize : Of ills I fpeak by long experience found, Oft' have I trod th' immeafurable round, And mourn'd my fhins bruis'd black with many a wound.
Strana 62 - Our own and others' good each hour employ, And all things fmile with univerfal joy ; Virtue with Happinefs her confort join'd, Would regulate and blefs each human mind, And man be what his Maker firft defign'd.
Strana 67 - Next morn difowns the lofies of the night, Becaufe the fool would fain be thought a bite. Devoted thus to politics, and cards, Nor mirth, nor wine, nor women he regards ; So far is...
Strana 21 - Good judges no fuch tumblers tricks regard Or think them beautiful, becaufe they're hard. 'Tis not enough that ev'ry ftander-by No glaring errors in your fteps can fpy, The dance and mufic muft...
