BY A FRIEND.
OFT has the buskin's Muse, with action mean,
To her belongs to mourn the Hero's fate,
Such lights and shades in a well-mingled draught,
Thus, thro' the following scenes, with sweet surprize,
Here the soft Virgin sees, with secret shame,
Behold him there with gloomy passions stain'd,
We dread a while, lest beauty should succeed,
Mark well the black Revenge, the cruel Guile,
Yet may his mighty wrongs, his just disdain, His bleeding country, his lov'd father slain, His martial pride, your admiration raise, And crown him with involuntary praise.
