Pagina 154 - Poor little, pretty, fluttering thing, Must we no longer live together ? And dost thou prune thy trembling wing; To take thy flight thou know'st not whither ? Thy humorous vein, thy pleasing folly Lies all neglected, all forgot : And pensive, wavering, melancholy, Thou dread'st and hop'st thou know'st not what.
Pagina 165 - Mov'd in the orb, pleas'd with the chimes, The foolish creature thinks he climbs : But here or there, turn wood or wire, He never gets two inches higher. So fares it with those merry blades, That frisk it under Pindus
Pagina 165 - SIMILE. Dear Thomas, did'st thou never pop Thy head into a tin-man's shop? There, Thomas, did'st thou never see ('Tis but by way of Simile !) A squirrel spend his little rage, In jumping round a rolling cage ? The cage, as either side...
Pagina 152 - Charity's more ample sway, Nor bound by time, nor subject to decay, In happy triumph shall for ever live, [ceive. And endless good diffuse, and endless praise reAs through the artist's intervening glass Our eye observes the distant planets pass, A little we discover, but allow That more remains unseen than art can show ; So whilst our mind its knowledge would improve, (Its feeble eye intent on things above) High as we may we lift our reason up, By Faith directed, and confirm'd by Hope ; Yet are we...
Pagina 262 - Produce my actions to severest light, And tax my open day, or secret night. Did e'er my tongue speak my unguarded heart The least inclin'd to play the wanton's part? Did e'er my eye one inward thought reveal, Which angels might not hear, and virgins tell?
Pagina 175 - He strove to make interest and freedom agree ; In public employments industrious and grave, And alone with his friends, Lord ! how merry was he. Now in equipage stately, now humbly on foot, Both fortunes he tried, but to neither would trust ; And whirl'd in the round as the wheel turn'd about, He found riches had wings, and knew man was but dust.
Pagina 107 - Prithee quit this Caprice; and (as Old Falstaff says) Let Us e'en talk a little like Folks of This World. How can'st Thou presume, Thou hast leave to destroy The Beauties, which VENUS but lent to Thy keeping? Those Looks were design'd to inspire Love and Joy: More ordinary Eyes may serve People for weeping.
Pagina 221 - Observe the various operations Of food and drink in several nations. . Was ever Tartar fierce or cruel Upon the strength of watergruel ? But who shall stand his rage and force, If first he rides, then eats his horse ? Salads, and eggs, and lighter fare, Tune the Italian spark's guitar : And, if I take Dan Congreve right, Pudding and beef make Britons
Pagina 172 - They seem'd just tallied for each other. Their moral and economy Most perfectly they made agree : Each virtue kept its proper bound, Nor trespass'd on the other's ground.
Pagina 148 - LOVER's ANGER. AS CLOE came into the Room t'other Day, £\_ I peevish began ; Where so long cou'd You stay ? In your Life-time You never regarded your Hour : You promis'd at Two ; and (pray look Child) 'tis Four. A Lady's Watch needs neither Figures nor Wheels : 'Tis enough, that 'tis loaded with Baubles and Seals. A Temper so heedless no Mortal can bear Thus far I went on with a resolute Air. Lord bless Me...
