ar remembrance from thy mind. No weeds destroy'd them with their pois'nous juice, Nor canst thou witches' magic charms accuse, Nor rival's rage, nor dire enchantment blame, Nor envy's blasting tongue, nor fever's flame. The mischief by thy own fair hands was wrought; Nor dost thou suffer for another's fault. How oft I bade thee, but in vain, beware The venom'd essence, that destroy'd thy hair? Now with new arts thou shalt thy pride amuse, And curls, of German captives borrow'd, use. Drusus to Rome their vanquish'd nation sends And the fair slave to thee her tresses lends. With alien locks thou wilt thy head adorn, And conquests gain'd by foreign beauties scorn. How wilt thou blush, with other charms to please, And cry, "How fairer were my locks than these !" By heav'ns, to heart she takes her head's disgrace, She weeps, and covers with her hands her face. She weeps, as in her lap her locks she views; What woman would not weep, such locks to lose! Ah, that they still did on her shoulder

ce thy friends; Rather on foes pursue more noble ends. Achilles' sword would certainly bestow A cure as certain as it gave the blow. Hunters, who follow flying game, give o'er When the prey's caught, hope still leads on before; We, thine own slaves, feel thy tyrannic blows. While thy tame hand's unmov'd against thy foes. On men disarm'd, how can you gallant prove ? And I was long ago disarm'd by love. Millions of dull men live, and scornful maids; We'll own love valiant when he these invades. Rome from each corner of the wide world snatch'd A laurel, or't had been to this day thatch'd; But the old soldier has his resting-place, And the good batter'd horse is turn'd to grass: The harass'd whore, who liv'd a wretch to please, Has leave to be a bawd, and take her ease. For me then, who have truly spent my blood, Love, in thy service, and so boldly stood In Celia's trenches, were't not wisely done, E'en to retire, and live at peace at home ? No-might I gain a godhead to disclaim My gloriou

e of quarrel new; the same Set Europe and proud Asia in a flame. For Helen, ravish'd by the Dardan boy, Was the war wag'd that sunk the pride of Troy; The Centaurs double form'd, half man, half beast, Defil'd with horrid war the nuptial feast; Inflam'd by wine and woman's magic charms, They turn'd the jolly face of joy to arms. 'Twas woman urg'd the strife; a second fair Involv'd the Trojans in a second war. What wreck, what ruin, did a Woman bring On peaceful Latium, and its pious king! When Rome was young and in her infant state What woes did woman to our sires create! Into what peril was that city brought, When Sabine fathers for their daughters fought ! Two lusty bulls I in the meads have view'd In combat join'd, and by their side there stood A milk-white heifer, who provok'd the fight, By each contended, but the conqueror's right; She gives them courage, her they both regard, As one that caus'd the war, and must reward.

his wicked trade, Among the race of men what havock had they made. Mankind had been extinct, and lost the seed, Without a wonder to restore the breed, As when Deucalion and his Purrha hurl'd The stones that sow'd with men the delug'd world, Had Thetis, goddess of the sea, refus'd To bear the burden, and her fruit abus'd, Who would have Priam's royal seat destroy'd? Or had the vestal whom fierce Mars enjoy'd, Stifled the twins within her pergnant womb, What founder would have then been born to Rome? Had Venus, when she with Aeneas teem'd, To death, ere born, Anchises' son condemn'd, The world had of the Caesars been depriv'd; Augustus ne'er had reign'd, nor Julius liv'd. And thou, whose beauty is the boast of fame, Hadst perish'd, had thy mother done the same; Nor had I liv'd love's faithful slave to be, Had my own mother dealt as ill by me. Ah, vile invention, ah, accurs'd design, To rob of rip'ning fruit the loaded vine Ah, let it grow for nature's use mature, Ah, let it its full leng
