ENGLISH POET S.
Where Virtue deigns to dwell;
In Pleasure's thoughtless train ;
In shades fequefter'd doze ;
And at corruption lour;
On anarchy to pow'r !
When Beauty was her throne;
A while suspends her wing:
And mark'd her last retreat ;
Amidit Elyfan ground:
Her secret steps to meet;
My Pelham's ardent breast;
And make a nation bleft.
Ye Wits, who boaft from ancient times, A right divine to scourge our crimes,
Is it with you the rests ? No. Int’relt, Nander are your views, And Virtue now, with every muse,
Flies your unhallow'd breafts. YOL. VII.
