Behold, nhat 1 olumes to the fires are, born.
What Throngs of Bards their crackling Labours mourn.
A happy and secure of evil Fame,
Had' but themselves consignd'em to the Flame
But where are they, whose Works the Muses prize.?
The lovå of Jove, and

Darlings of the skies.

A
Beauteous face, fine shape, engaging air,

A bonny lad there was,
A cobler there was, and he liv'd in a stall,
Adieu, ye pleasant sports and plays,
After the pangs of a desperate lover,
A gentle warmth comes o'er my

heart,
Ah! Belinda, I am prest,
Ah, cruel beauty! cou'd you prove,
Ah! Strephon, charming youth, forbear,
Ah! Sylvia, never baulk my pleasure,
Ah! why, Alexis, wou'd

you

leave
Alas! when charming Sylvia's gone,
All own the young Sylvia is fatally fair,
All thoughts of freedom are too late,
Alone, by a fountain,
An am'rous (wain to Juno pray'd,
Ann thou wert my ain thing,
As after noon, one summer's day,
As Čelia in her garden stray'd,
As Cupid, roguishly, one day,
As fidlers, and archers, who cunningly knovo
As Flavia, in the fleeting glass,
As naked almost, and more fair you appear,
As near a fountain's .flow'ry side,
As, on a fun-Shine summer's day,
As Persians fretch their votive arms
As swift as time, put round the glass,
A swain, long tortur'd with disdain,
A swain, of love despairing,
