EPIS T L E VII.

Imitated in the Manner of Dr. Swift.

'TIS true, my Lord, I gave my word,

1 I would be with you, June the third ;
Chang'd it to August, and (in short)
.Have kept it-as you do at Court.

You humour me when I am sick,
Why not when I am fplenetick?
In town, what Objects could I meet?
The shops shut up in ev'ry street,
And Fun’rals black’ning all the Doors,
And yet more melancholy Whores :
And what a duit in evry place?
And a thin Court that wants your Face,
And Fevers raging up and down,
And W* and H** both in Town!

“ The dog-days are no more the case.” 'Tis true, but Winter comes apace :.

Quàm mihi das aegro, dabis aegrotare timenti,
Maecenas, veniam : dum ficus prima calorque
Designatorem decorat lictoribus atris:
Dum pueris omnis pater, et matercula pallet;
Officiofaque fedulitas, et opella forenfis
Adducit febres, et teftamenta refignat.
Quod fi bruma nives Albanis illinet agris;
