So thou, dear bird, young leany fair,

Why foould she wirlefs mortals ftrive * Do trembling string or vocal air,

For vulgar ancestry and place ! Shakt sweetly pay ihe tender care

Why boast their birth before his eyes, That cents thy early moroing.

Who holds ao human creature mean; So thou sweet rose-bud young and gay,

Ye who never shed a tear,

Nor wonder'd whence the keuch she drew; Care catroubled, joy surrounded,

Suppoling it deliga'd from you.
