But Gee, at length, tne British Genius smile,
And show'r her bounties o'er her favour'd isle1
Behold, for POPE she twines the laurel crown,
And centres tv'rv poet's pow'r in one———— .
piich Muse for thee with kind contention strove,
For thee the Grace* left th' Idaliau grove,
With watchful fondness o'er thy cradle hung,
AttuuM thy voice, and form'd thy in Ian t tonguv.

Coma 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 euds,
Teach inc, like thee, in various Nature wise,

Jo fall with dignity, with temper rise .

Oh! while along the stream oftimo thv name
Expanded flies, and gathers ail i"» fame,
Say, shall iny little bark atUnduu sail,
Pursue the triumph, and partake the Rale?
Shall then this Verse to future age pretend
Thou wen my guide, philosopher, and friend?
lhat, urgdhythee, I tiiru'd the tuneful art
From lounds to things, from fancy to the heart?
lor Wit's false mirror held up Nature's light,

Shew d erring Pride— whatever is, is right

i hi* virtue only makes our bliss below.

And all our knowledge is—ourselves to know?
