Dum vulsos montes ceu tela reciproca torquent,

Et non mortali desuper igne pluunt :...
Stat dubius cui se parti concedat Olympus,

Et metuit pugnæ non superesse suæ.
At fimul in cælis Mesliæ insignia fulgent,

Ét currus animes, armaque digna Deo,
Horrendumque rotæ ftrident, et fæva rotarum

Erumpunt torvis fulgura luminibus,
Et flammæ vibrant, & vera tonitrua rauco

Admiftis flammis insonuere polo :
Excidit attonitis mens omnis, & impetus omnis,

Et cassis dextris irrita tela cadunt;
Ad pænas fugiunt, & ceu foret Orcus asylum,

Infernis certant condere fe tenebris.
Cedite Romani Scriptores, cedite Graii,
Et

quos fama recens vel celebravit anus. Hæc quicunque leget tantùm ceciniffe putabit Mæonidem ranas, Virgilium culices.

SAMUEL BARROW, M. D.

ON PARADISE LOS T.

WHEN I beheld the Poet blind, yet bold,

In
Meffiah crown'd, God's reconcil'd decree,
Rebelling Angels, the forbidden tree,
Heaven, Hell, Earth, Chaos, all; the argument

li
Held me a while misdoubting his intent,
That he would ruin (for I saw him strong)
The sacred truths to fable and old song,
(So Sampfon grop'd the temple's posts in spite)
The world o'erwhelming to revenge his fight.
