THE THAMES.

DENHAM'S COOPER'S HILL.

7 My eye de | scending from the hill, 7 1 7 sur 1

veys 7 | 7 Where | Thames a | mong the / wanton | vallies |

strays: 71 Thames! 7| 7 the most | lov'd of all the ocean's

| sons 7 | 7 By his | old 7 | sire, 7 | 7 to his em | braces / runs,

71

Hasting to pay his tribute to the sea, 7 |
7 Like | mortal | life 7 | 7 to 1 meet e | ternity; |

Tho' with those streams 7 1 7 he no resemblance

| hold, 71 Whose 7 | foam is | amber, | 7 and their | gravel 7

gold; 7 | His 7 | genuine | 7 and less / guilty / wealth to ex

plore, 91 Search not his bottom, | | but survey his 1

shore, 91 7 O'er / which he / kindly / spreads his / spacious |

wing, 7 | 7 And | hatches | plenty 1 7 for the ensuing |

spring, 71 7 Nor | then de I stroys it | 7 with too | fond a / stay,

7 Like / mothers 1 7 which their / infants | over

lay; 71 | Nor with a sudden and im / petuous I wave, 7

1 1 1 Like pro | fuse | kings, 7 17 resumes 7 1 7 the |

wealth he gave. 7. No 7 | unex | pected | inundations | spoil 7 | 7 The | mower's | hopes, 9 17 nor | mock 7 1 7 the

| ploughman's | toil; 7 | 7 But I godlike | his un / wearied | bounty | flows;

71 First 7 | loves to I do, a | then 7 | loves the l good he

| does. 71 Nor are his | blessings ( 7 to his / banks con / fined,

7 But | free and common, 17 as the / sea or |

wind; 7 | When he to boast 7 | or to dis / perse bis !

stores, 7 | Full of the tributes of his , grateful | shores, 7 | Visits the / world; 7 | | and in his flying | towers | Brings | home to us, / 7 and makes both | Indies

ours; 71 | Finds 7 | wealth where l 'tis, 7 1 7 bestows it.

1 7 where it wants, 7 | | Cities in | deserts, / woods in cities, | plants. 7

1 So that to l us 7 | no 7 | thing, 7 | no 7 | place is /

strange, 7| While his | fair 7 | bosom | 7 is the world's ex |
