The Muse, whose early voice you taught to sing,
Prescrib'd her heights, andprun'd her tender wing,
(Her guide now lost) no more attempts to rife,
But in low numbers sliort excursions tries: 739
Content,ishence th'unlearn'd their wants may view,
The learn'd reflect on what before they knew:
Careless of censure, nor too fond os fame;
Still pleas'd to praise, yet not afraid to blame;
Averse alike to flatter, or offend; 744

Not free from faults, nor yet too vain to mend.
