Yet peace—new music floats on Æther's v.ings;
Say, is it Harmony hell elf who sings?
No! while enraptur'd Sylphs the song inspire,
'Tis POPE who sweetly wakes the silver lyre,
To melting notes, more musically dear
Than Ariel whisper'd in Belinda's ear.
Too soon he quits them for a sharper tone;
Fee him, though form'd to fill the epic throne
Decline the sceptre of that wide domain,
To bear a licl.ir's rod in satire's train,
And, shrouded in a mist of moral spleen,
Behold him close the visionary scene.
