What VARIELLA, can we wish to thee?
For thou possessest all that's dear unto man;
Wit, Talents, Erudition, though they be
Not always so delightful in a woman;
Yet those who read thy Tales and Poems, see
A soaring mind, and genius most uncommon.
Still, still soar on! — In prose and verse still charm us,
For while thou lead'st the van, there's nought can harm us.
