For thee, sweet nymph, inspirer of my theme,
Frequent I twine a wreath of varied flowers,
When Cynthia shining thro' the leafy bowers,
Calls me to wander near some wizard stream:—
And when the shuttle of the radiant morn
Weaves the light cobweb on each hawthorn spray,
Enwrapt I listen to thy thrilling lay;
And oft my heart by secret anguish torn,
Sighs o'er the strain, that grac'd MIRANDA'S tomb,
And sooth'd her soul to rest. — With heavenly fire
Wake the deep cadence of the epic lyre,
And sweep the chords sublime — Eternal bloom
Shall grace thy laurell'd brow, and deathless Fame
Shall sound thro' every age thy glorious name.
