'With rotten damps ravish the morning air; (779)

Let their exhaled unwholesome breaths make sick (780)

The life of purity, the supreme fair, (781)

Ere he arrive his weary noon-tide prick; (782)

And let thy misty vapours march so thick,
That in their smoky ranks his smother'd light (784)

May set at noon and make perpetual night.
