This elegant Rose had I shaken it less ,

Might have bloomed with its owner awhile ;
And the tear, that is wip'd with a little address,

May be follow'd perhaps with a smile.

BY

WILLIAM COWPER,

OF THE INNER TEMPLE, ESQ.

Sicut aquæ tremulum labris ubi lamen ahenis
Sole repercussum, aut radiantis imagine lunæ,
Omnia pervolitat late loca, jamque sub auras
Erigitur, soumique ferit laquearia tecti.

Virg. Æn. viii.
So water, trembling in a polish'd vase,
Refleets the beam, that plays upon its face;
The sportive light, uncertain wliere it falls,
Now strikes the roof, now flashes on the walls.

IN TWO VOLUMES.

VOL. I.
