Sit like his grandsire cut in alabaster

Why roam thy steps to this abandon'd dale

Heavens not his own and worlds unknown before

To whom can riches give repute or trust
Content or pleasure but the good and just Pope
To him no high no low no great no small
He fills he bounds connects and equals all Id
Reason's whole pleasure all the joys of sense
Lie in three words health peace and competence Id
