ALEXANDER'S FEAST:

OR, THE POWER OF MUSIC.
An Ode in Honour of St. Cecilia's Day.
'Twas at the royal feast for Persia won

By Philip's warlike son:
Aloft in awful state
The godlike hero sate

On his imperial throne :

His valiant peers were plac'd around;
Their brows with roses and with myrtles bound:

(So should desert in arms be crown'd)
The lovely Thais, by his side,
Sate, like a blooming eastern bride,
In flower of youth and beauty's pride.

Happy, happy, happy pair !
None but the brave,
None but the brave,

None but the brave deserves the fair.
VOL. 111.
