Then, too, the pillar'd dome magnific heav'd
11% ample roof, and luxury within
Pour'd out her glittering stores; the canvas smooth
With glowing life protuberant to the view
Embodied rose; the statue seem'd to breathe
And soften into flcxh beneath the touch
Of forming Art, imagination-flush'd. ---THOMSON.
