Deserted at his utmost need
With downcast look the joyless victor sate,
And tears began to flow.
Softly sweet in Lydian measures,
Never ending, still beginning,
If the world be worth thy winning, Think, O think it worth enjoying !
Lovely Thäis sits beside thee,
Gaz'd on the fair
Sigh'd and look'd, and sigh'd again :
Now strike the golden lyre again ;
Hark, hark, the horrid sound
Revenge, revenge, Timotheus cries,
See the Furies arise,
Behold a ghastly band,
Each a torch iri his hand;
And unburied remain
Behold how they toss their torches on high,
How they point to the Persian abodes,
The princes applaud, with a furious joy ;
Thäis led the way,
To light him to his prey,
Thus, long ago,
And sounding lyre,
At last divine Cecilia came,
Inventress of the vocal frame ;
Enlarg’d the former narrow bounds,
And added length to solemn sounds,
Let old Timotheus yield the prize,
ON THE DEATH OF MRS. THROCKMORTON'S BULFINCH.
Ye nymphs ! if e'er your eyes were red
O share Maria's grief !
Assassin'd by a thief
And though by nature mute,
Of flagelet or flute.
His bosom of the hue
To sweep up all the dew.
No cat had leave to dwell;
of smoothest shaven wood,
For Bully's plumage sake,
The swains their baskets make.
Subsistence to provide,
And badger-colour'd hide.
He, ent'ring at the study door,
And something in the wind
Food, chiefly, for the mind.
In sleep he seem'd to view
Awoke and found it true.
Ah, Muse! forbear to speak
He left poor Bully's beak.
Of such mellifluous tone,
Fast set within his own.
