Written on the road between Bath and Bristol,
" BY G. DV-HARLEYV.

And seeni to wonder why I oic"
E'en while the baams of thy blue eye

You pray me banish from my lreast
The image of a farm $b dear,
"Give-to4ts flutt'rirs tenant rest,
And cease to- shed the Jjppeless tear.
Ali Chloe! if sincere thy prayer,
- Why, as you touch my passions wild,
Heates the white bosom of my fear ?
Qvfalteis her 'injunctions mild?
Is't Pity's trem'loiis voice alone ?
" Is't Sympathy's unusual swell ?
Or frolic Lote, to torture prone ?
Sweet mistress of the secret tell?
Let not suspense my rest destroy,
Bat bid indeed my anguish cease--
And if thou cans't not give me 'joy,
O give me back my banish' & peace.

rorego my nature, son ana ninu,
Fix on thy brow tit eternal frown,
Dismantle that fair frame, thy mind
' Tear all its bland adornments down.
. . ' n
,! Snatch from thy form its matchless grace,
Thy converse sweet repulsive prove ;
Fade the Fresh beauties of thy face ;
And, Chloe, IWill cease to love.
Then free me from the pow'rful SeUt !

Or lodge mc where young Captures dwell,
In Love's own-paradise thy'crj
