To paint the shifting Scene is thine

With hafty Tints, but juft Defign;

Thine, to record the tranfient Deed

With Hying FAME's impatient Speed:

From thee fucceeding Times fhall know

What War's have vex'd the World



What LEARNING'S patient Labour
What Poets fung, what Sages thought:
But from thy Works felected still, [611,
This Tome fome favour'd place thail
Supreme where BRITAIN has decreed
The Nations round no more shall bleed,
Has bid itern WAR'S Dominion cease,
Andyiven this pendant Ball to PEACE:
Where TIME records that BRITAIN'S

Boafts a new Heir that's all her own. --
