O Muse! relate (for you can tell alone, Wits have short memories, and dunces none), Relate who first, who last, resign'd to rest ; 621 Whose heads she partly, whose completely blest; What charms could faction, what ambition lull, The venal quiet, and intrance the dull ; [wrongTill drown'd was sense, and shame, and right, and O sing, and hush the nations with thy song !

In vain, in vain—the all-composing hour Resistless falls: the Muse obeys the power. She comes ! she comes ! the sable throne behold Of Night primeval, and of Chaos old ! Before her Fancy's gilded clouds decay, And all its varying rainbows die away. Wit shoots in vain its momentary fires, The meteor drops, and in a flash expires. As one by one, at dread Medea's strain, The sickening stars fade off th' ethereal plain ; As Argus' eyes, by Hermes' wand opprest, 637

IMITATIONS.

621 Relate who first, who last, resign'd to rest :

Whose heads she partly, whose completely blest]
• Quem telo primum, quem postremum aspera Virgo
Dejicis ? aut quot humi morientia corpora fundis ?

VIRG. 637 As Argus' eyes,' &c.]

• Et quamvis sopor est oculorum parte receptus,
Parte tamen vigilat
- Vidit Cyllenius omnes
Succubuisse oculos,' &c.

OVID. MET. II

Clos'd one by one to everlasting rest;
Thus at her felt approach, and secret might,
Art after Art goes out, and all is night.
See sculking Truth to her old cavern fled,
Mountains of casuistry heap'd o'er her head !
Philosophy, that lean'd on Heaven before,
Shrinks to her second cause, and is no more.
Physic of Metaphysic begs defence,
And Metaphysic calls for aid on sense !
See Mystery to Mathematics fly!
In vain! they gaze, turn giddy, rave, and die.
Religion, blushing, veils her sacred fires,
And unawares Morality expires.
Nor public flame, nor private, dares to shine;
Nor human spark is left, nor glimpse divine!
Lo: thy dread empire, Chaos! is restor'd;
Light dies before thy uncreating word:
Thy hand, great Anarch! lets the curtain fall;
And universal darkness buries all.
