When mighty SHAKESPEARE to thy judging eye
Presents that magic glass, whose ample Round
Reflects each Figure in Creation's bound,
And pours, in floods of supernatural light,
Fancy's bright Beings on the charmed sight-
This chief Enchanter of the willing breast,
Will teach thee all the magic he possesst,
Plac'd in his Circle, mark in colours true
Each brilliant Being that he calls to view :
Wrapt in the gloomy storm, or rob’d in light,
His weird Sister or his fairy Sprite,
Boldly o'erleaping, in the great design,
The bounds of Nature, with a guide divine.
