In fuch a pleafing form I cry'd,

Fair, virtuous, and difereet.
But ibofi my judgment falfe I find.
Pride fweird her icornful breaft ;

His fancied Juno prov’d at laft

who loves yoUgmuch; they call him

painful, titles ; that of being yourfub-

three together are good; and let what
tvill happen, I have rcfolved never to
yield them to any one.”
