A ke n ride.

21Eenside.

In seinem trefflichen Lehrgedichte åber die Erg8gungen der Einbildungstraft (S. B. II. S. 321.) ift weit mehr Poes fie, Wärme und Fülle der Darstellung, als in den zwei Bů. chern seiner Oden, deren überhaupt drei und dreißig, alle philosophischer Gattung, find. Nur in wenigen bleibt sich der lyrische Ausdruck so gleich, wie in folgender:

ODE AGAINST SUSPICION.

Oh Ay! 'tis dire Suspicion's mien,
And meditating plagues unleen
The forc'ress hither bends;
Behold her torch in gall imbrud,
Behold! her garment droops with blood
Of lovers and of friends,

Fly far! already in your eyes
I see a pale fuffusion rife;
And foon thro' ev'ry vein,
Soon will her secret venom spread,
And all your heart and all

your

head Imbibe the potent stain.

Then many a demon will she raile,
To vex your sleep, to haunt your ways,
While gleams of loft delight
Raise the dark tempest of the brain,
As lightning shines across the main
Thro' whirlwinds and thro' night.

No more can Faith or Candour move,
But each ingenuous deed of love,
