THE LIFE OF THE AUTHOR.

Cooke's Edition.

But fee, at length, the British Genius smile,
And show'r her bounties o'er her favour'd ille:
Behold, for Pope The twines the laurel crown,
And centers ev'ry poet's power in one.
Each Muse for thee with kind contention ftrove,
For thee the Graces left th' Idalian grove,
With watchful fondness o'er thy cradle hung,
Attun'd thy voice, and form'd thy infant tongue.

Brown.

Come then, my Friend ! my Genius! come along;
Oh, matter of the poet and the fong!
And while the Mule now ftoops, or now afcends,
To man's low paffions or their glorious ends,
Teach me, like thee, various Nature wife,
To fall with dignity, with temper rife.
Oh! while along the stream of time thy name
Expanded flies, and gathers all its fame,
Say, mall my little bark attendant fail,
Pursue the triumph, and partake the gale?
Shall then this Verfé to future age pretend
Thou wert my guide, philofopher, and friend?
That, urg'd by thee, I turn'a the tuneful art
From founds to things, from fancy to the heart;
For Wit's false mirror held up Nature's light,
Shew'd erring Pride whatever is is right;
That virtue only makes our blifs below,
And all our knowledge is ourselves to know.

Ejay on Man,

PRINTED AND EMBELLISHED
Under the Direction of

C. COOKE.
