I'll tend thy image from my heart,

Thy charms no more engage; My soul shall take the juster part, And love shall yield to rage.

Which art at pleasure can renew.

SAIR XVI.

les meilla

THO' my dress, as my manners, is simple and plain,
A rascal I hate, and a knave I disdain;
My dealings are juft, and my conscience is clear,
And I'm richer than thofe who have thousands a year.

Tho' bent down with age and for sporting uncouth,
I feel no remorse from the follies of youth ;
I still tell my tale, and rejoice in my fong,

2 And my boys think

my

life not a moment too long

Let the courtiers, those dealers in grin and grimace,
Creep under, dance over, for title or place;
Above all the titles that flow from a throne, Ano1
That of honest I prize, and that title's my own.

AIR XVI.

FROM Aow's to flow'r the butterfly,

O'er fields or gardens ranging, TAAS Sips sweets from each, and futters by,

And all his life is changing.

Thus roving man new objects sway,

By various charms delighted, While the who pleases moft to-day

To-morrow shall be flighted.

AIR XVII.

[ocr errors]

WHEN far from Fashion's gilded scene

I breath'd my native air,
My thoughts were calm, my mind serene,

No doubtings harbour'd there.

But now no more myself I find.
Distraction rends my

breast;
Whilft hopes and fears disturb my mind,

And murder all my rest.
