Thefteep where Fame's proud temple shinesafar!
Ab! who can tell how many a foul sublime
Has felt the influence of malignant itar,
And wag'd with Fortune an eternal war!
Check’d by the scoff of Pride, by Envy's frown,
And Poverty's unconquerable bar,

In life's low vale remote has pined alone,
Then dropt into the grave, unpitied and unknown!

II. And yet, the languor of inglorious days, Not equally oppreffive is to all. Him who ne'er liftend to the voice of praise, The filence of neglect can ne'er appal. There are, who, deaf to mad Ambition's call, Wou'd fhrink to hear th'obftreperous trump of Fame; Supremely bleft if to their portion fall Health, competence, and peace. Nor higher aim Had He, whose fimple tale these artless lines proclaim.
