Page 384 - In happy climes, where from the genial fun And virgin earth fuch fcenes enfue, The force of art by nature feems outdone, And fancied beauties by the true : • In happy climes, the feat of innocence, Where nature guides and virtue rules, Where men fhall not impofe for truth and fenfe The pedantry of courts and fchools : There fhall be fung another golden age...
Page 385 - There fhall be fung another golden age, The rife of empire and of arts, The good and great infpiring epic rage, The wifeft heads and nobleft hearts.
