Working thro' a Sea of Blood;
And when this is said, and more,
And Praises rattled o'er and o'er ; .

And what's this hidden Charm? (she cr’d)"

From Limbs of such a Shape, and Hue
As Titian's Pencil never drew;
Resoly'd the dark Abode to trace
Of Female Honour, or Disgrace,
Where Vertue finds her Task too hard,
And often Slumbers on the Guard.

Th' Attempt she makes, and buckles to
With all her Might; but 'rwould not do:
Still, as she bent, the Part requir'd,

If real, or pretended Lovers ;
Determines the Decrees of Fate;
The Loss of Friends to get Estate:

Whether the Sick will live or dye ;
How long a Virgin you'll remain,
And Sigh whole Days and Nights in vain ;

Inall ever wed or not,
How many Times 'twill be your Lot;
