Page 94 - Or like those envious pearls that show So faintly round that neck of snow. Yes, I would be a happy gem. Like them to hang, to fade like them. What more would thy Anacreon be ? Oh, anything that touches thee ! Nay, sandals for those airy feet — Thus to be press'd by thee were sweet ! ODE XXIII.

Thus man, the sport of bliss and care, Rises on Time's eventful sea, And, having swelled a moment there, Thus melts into eternity ! A CHALLENGE.
