YLVIA the fair, in the bloom of fifteen,

an innocent warmth, as she lay on

green :

Shehad heard of a pleasure, and something sheguest By the towzing, and tumbling, and touching her

breast : She saw the men eager, but was at a loss, What they meant by their fighing, and kiffing fo

close;
By their praying and whining,
And clasping and twining,
And panting and wishing,
And sighing and kissing,
And fighing and kissing so close.

II.

Ah! she cry'd ; ah for a languishing maid,
In a country of Christians, to die without aid !
Not a Whig, or a Tory, or Trimmer at least,
Or a Protestant parfon, or Catholic priest,
To instruct a young virgin, that is at a loss,
What they meant by their sighing, and kissing so

close!

By their praying and whining,
And clasping and twining,
And panting and wishing,
And fighing and kissing,
And fighing and kissing so close.

III.
Cupid in shape of a swain did

appear, He saw the sad wound, and in pity drew near ; Then show'd her his arrow, and bid her not fear; For the pain was no more than a maiden may

bear; When the balm was infus'd, she was not at a loss, What they meant by their sighing, and kissing so

close;

By their praying and whining,
And clasping and twining,
And panting and wishing,
And fighing and kissing,
And fighing and kissing so close.

A Choir of bright

beauties in spring did appeár, To choose a May-lady to govern All the nymphs were in white, and the shepherds

the

year;

in green;

The garland was given, and Phyllis was queen;
But Phyllis refus'd it, and sighing did say,
I'll not wear a garland while Pan is away,

II.
While Pan, and fair Syrinx, are fled from our shore,
The Graces are banish'd, and Love is no more ::
The soft God of pleasure, that warm'd our desires,
Has broken his bow, and extinguish'd his fires :
Andvows thàt himself, and his mother, will mourn,
Till Pan and fair Syrinx in triumph return.

III. Forbear your addresses, and court us no more ; For we will perform what the Deity swore : But if you dare think of deserving our charms, Away with your sheephooks, and take to your arms: Then laurels and myrtles your brows shall adorn, When Pan, and his son, and fair Syrinx, return.

I.
AIR, sweet and young, receive a prize
Resery'd for

your victorious eyes : From crouds, whom at your feet

you

see,
O pity, and distinguish me!
As I from thousand beauties more
Distinguish you, and only you adore,

II.
Your face for conquest was design'd,
Your every motion charms my mind;
Angels, when you your filence break,
Forget their hymns, to hear you speak;
But when at once they hear and view,
Arę loth to mount, and long to stay with you,

No graces can your form improve,
But all are loft, unless you love ;
While that sweet passion you disdain,
Your yeil and beauty are in vain ;
In pity then prevent my fate,
For after dying all reprieve's too late.

IGH state and honors to others impart,
H But give me your heart :
That treasure, that treasure alone,

I beg for my own.
So gentle a love, fo fervent a fire,

My soul does inspire ;
That treasure, that treasure alone,

I beg for my own.
Your love let me crave;

Give me in possessing
So matchless a blessing;
That empire is all I would have.

Love's my petition,
All my ambition;
If e'er

you

discover
So faithful a lover,
So real a flame,
I'll die, I'll die,
So give up my game.
