EMOTE from cities liv'd a swain,

Unvex'd with all the cares of gain;
His head was filver'd o'er with age,
And long experience made him fage ;

In summer's heat, and winter's cold,
He fed his flock and penn'd the fold;
His hours in chearful labour flew,
Nor envy nor ambition knew :
His wisdom and his honeft fame
Through all the country rais'd his name.

A deep philosopher (whose rules
Of moral life were drawn from schools:)
The Shepherd's homely cottage fought,
And thus explor'd his reach of thought.

Whence is thy learning ? Hath thy toit
O'er books.consum'd the midnight oil?
Hait thou-old Greece and Rome survey'do
And the vast fense of Plato weigh'd
Haft Socrates thy foul refin’d,
And hast thou fathom.d Tully's mind?
Or, like the wife ULYSSES, thrown,
By various fates, on realms unknowr,
Haft thou through many cities ftray'd,
Their cultoms, laws, and manners weigh'd ?

The shepherd modestly reply'd,
I ne'er the paths of learning try'd;
Nor have I roam'd in foreign parts
To read mankind, their laws and arts ;
For man is practis'd in disguise,
He cheats the most discerning eyes ;
Who by that search shall wiser grow,
When we ourselves can never know?
