So the fam'd Patriarch, on his couch of stone, And while each plant a smiling grace reveals,

Far from the insults of the scornful groat; Companion! brother! all in one-my friend!
Thence looking with disdain on proudest things, Unleis the soul a wound eternal bears,
Thou deemed'it mean the pageantry of kings; Sighs are but air; but coinmon water, tears :
Who build their pride on trappinga uf a throne, The proud, relenthis, weep in state, and thow

Where hyinning teraphs founu their golden lyres, A thousand wonders glorious to behold;

While thus I spoke, Love's gentle power
It finks, the frail poffeffion of a day!

Descended from th' ethereal bower ;
As fome fond boy, in sport, along the shore A quiver at his shoulder hung,
Builds from the sands a fabric of an hour ;

A shaft he grasp’d, and bow untrung.
Proud of his spacious walls, and stately rooms, All nature own'd the genial God,
He styles the mimic cells imperial domes;

And the spring flourish'd where he trod;
The little monarch swells with fancy'd Iway, My heart, no ftranger to the guest,
Ti'll me wind rising puff's the dome away: Flutter'd, and labour'd in my brealt;
So the poor repcile, man ! an heir of woe,

When, with a smile that kindles joy
The lord of earth and ocean, swells in thow; Ev'n in the Gods, began the boy :
He plants, he builds, aloft the walls arise !

How vain these tears! is man decreed,
The noble plan he finishes, and--dies.

By being abject, to succeed?
Swept from the earth, he shares the common fate; Hop't thou by meagre looks to move ?
His fole distinction now, to rot in state !

Are women frighten'd into love?
Thus busy to no end till out of breath,

He most prevails, who nobly dares ;
Tir'd we lie down, and close up all in death. In love an hero, as in wars :
Then bleft the man whom gracious heaven has Ev’n Venus may be known to yield,

But 'tis when Mars disputes the field :
Through life's blind mizes to th' immortal dead ! Sent from a daring hand my dart
Who, fafely landed on the blissful shore,

Strikes deep into the fair-one's heart:
Nor human folly feels nor frailty more !

To winds and waves thy cares bequcata, O! Death, thou cure of all our idle strife!

A sigh is but a waste of breath.
End of the gay, or serious farce of life!

What though gay youth, and every grace
With of the just, and refuge of th'opprest ! That beauty boasts, adorn her face ;
Where poverty, aud where ev'n kings find rest! Yet Goddefies have deign'd to wed,
Sate from the frowns of power ! calm, thoughtful And take a mortal to their bed :

And heaven, when gifts of incense rise,
And the rude insults of the scornful great!

Accepts it, though it cloud their skies. grave is sacred! wrath and malice dread

Mark! how this marygold conccals To violate its peace, and wrong the dead :

Her beauty, and her bolom veils; Eut, life, thy name is woe ! to death we fly How from the dull embrace the Aies To grow immortal -into life we die !

Of Phæbus, when his beams arise :
Then wisely heaven in filence has confin'd

But when his glory he displays,
The happier dead, leit none should stay behind. And darts around his ficrcer rays,
What though the path be dark that muit be trod, Her charms she opens, and receives
Though man be blotted from the works of God, The vigorous God into her leaves.
Though the four winds his scatter'd atoms bear
To earth's extremes through all th' expanse of air ;
Yet, bursting glorious from the filent clay,
He mounts triumphant to eternal day.

So, when the sun rolls down th' ethereal plain, THE COMPLAINT.

Bold was Bonduca, and hcr arrows flew

To Cælia's eyes a desert is more fair
