of our repeated joy. While on herself she practises her skill, She's like the mother, not the child, to kill. Me she would not acquaint with what she did, From me a thing, which I abhorr'd, she hid; Well might I now be angry, but I fear, Ill as she is, I might endanger her. By me, I must confess, she did conceive, The fact is so, or else I so believe; We've cause to think, what may so likely be, So is, and then the babe belongs to me Oh Isis, who delight'st to haunt the fields, Where fruitful Nile his golden harvest yields, Where with seven mouths into the sea it falls, And hast thy walks around Canope's walls, Who Memphis visit'st, and the Pharian tower, Assist Corinna with thy friendly powers. Thee by thy silver Sistra I conjure, A life so precious by thy aid secure; So mayst thou with Osiris still find grace: By Anubis's venerable face, I pray thee, so may still thy rights divine Flourish, and serpents round thy offerings twine May Apis with his horns the pomp attend, And be to thee

and, churl, my journey break ? What wouldst, if thee indeed some noble race, Or high descent, and glorious name did grace ? When of no ancient house or certain seat, (Nor, known before this time, untimely, great) Rais'd by some sudden thaw thus high and proud, No holding thee, ill-manner'd upstart flood ; Not my love-tales can make thee stay thy course, Thou--zounds, thou art a -- river for a horse. Thou hadst no fountain, but from bears wert pist, From snows, and thaws, or Scotch unsav'ry mist. Thou crawl'st along, in winter foul and poor, In summer puddled like a common-shore. In all thy days when didst a courtesy ? Dry traveller ne'er laid a lip to thee. The bane to cattle, to the meadows worse, For something all, I for my sufferings curse. To such unworthy wretch, how am I sham'd, That I the gen'rous am'rous river nam'd! When Nile and Achelous I display'd, And Thame and Ouse, what worm was in my head For thy reward, discourteous river, I Wish, be the summers hot, the winters dry.
