VOL. I.

Cooke's Edition.

But see, at length, the British Genius smile,
And show'r ber bounties o'er her favour'd isle:
Behold, for POPE she twines the laurel crown,
And centres ev'ry poet's pow'rin one
Fach Muse for thee with kind contention stroye.
For thee the Graces left th'Idalian grove,
With watchful fondness o'er thy cradle hung,
Attun'd thy voice, and forin'd thy infant tongue.

Come then, my Friend ! my Genius! come along;
Oh, master of the poet and the song!
And while the Muse now stoops, or now ascends,
To man's low passions, or their glorious ends,
Teach me, like thee, in various Nature wise,
To fall with dignity, with temper rise...
Oh! while along the streain of time thy name
Expanded flies, and gathers all its fame,
Say, shall my little bark attendant sail,
Pursue the triumph, and partake the gale?
Shall then this Verse to future age pretend
Thou wert my guide, philosopher, and friend?
That, urg'd by thee, I turn'd the tuncful art
From sounds 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 bliss below,
And all our knowledge is --Ourselves to know?

Essay on Man.
