36. Lenta quibus tomo facili mperaddita vitis, Diffuses edera vestit pallente coiymbos. Virgil. 36. And dusters lurk beneath the curling vines. 38. The subject of these Pastorals engraven on the bowl is not without its propriety. The shepherd's hesitation at the name of the zodiac, imitates that in Virgil, Et quis fuit alter, Descripsit radio Mum qui gentibus orbem? 4 PASTORALS Damon Then sing by turns, by turns the Muses sing. Now hawthorns blossom, now the daisies spring, Now leaves the trees, and flowers adorn the ground; Begin, the vales shall every note rebound.

The balmy zephyrs, silent since her death, Lament the ceasing of a sweeter breath. 0 23 f. Inducite fontibus umbras— Et tumulum facile, et tumulo suferaddite carmen. 38. For her the flocks the deny herb disdain, Nor hungry heifers graze the tender plain. 30 40 50 l6 PASTORALS No more the mounting larks, while Daphne sings, Shall listening in mid air suspend dieir wings; No more the birds shall imitate her lays, Or hushed with wonder, hearken from the sprays: No more the streams their murmurs shall forbear, A sweeter music than their own to hear, But tell the reeds, and tell the vocal shore, Fair Daphne's dead, and music is no more!

Between this and 448: The rhyming clowns that gladded Shakespeare's age, No more with crambo entertain the stage. Who now in anagrams their patron praise, Or sing their mistress in acrostic lays? Ev 'n pulpits pleased with merry puns of yore; Now all are banished to the Hibernian shore! Thus leaving what mas natural and fit, The current folly proved their ready ml; And authors thought their reputation safe, Which lived as long as fools were pleased to laugh. 32 AN ESSAY ON C R I T I C I S M For envied wit, like Sol eclipsed, makes known Th' opposing body's grossness, not its own.
