    All times their scenes of pompous woe afford, From Persia's tyrant to Bavaria's lord. Once more, Democritus! The Enchanter calls! Front hinge is tender. With nicest taste our evening banquet glows, From the rich flask old Gascon's vintage flows.

    Yet Justice there, severely kind, repairs The widow's wrongs, and dries the orphan's tears. Mute silence list'ning, and each dubious plea, Taken by reason to thy firm decree Statesman and sage—a better, I will lend A higher title still—the generous friend. His fall was destined to a barren strand, A petty fortress, and a dubious hand; He left the name at which the world grew pale, To point a moral, or adorn a tale. Come, born to fill its vast desires!

    For her how fair the purple morning glows! E'en as I speak, behold the Enchantress flies, While at her feet departing pleasure lies. When first the college rolls receive his name, The young enthusiast quits his ease for fame; Resistless burns the fever of renown, Caught from the strong contagion of the gown: O'er Bodley's dome his future labours spread, And Bacon's[1] mansion trembles o'er his head. He wrote various isolated poems showing a fine descriptive touch, of which the most important are "The Hermit," "The Night Piece," and "The Hymn to Contentment. All times their scenes of pompous woe afford, From Persia's tyrant to Bavaria's lord. To such the plunder of a land is given, When public crimes inflame the wrath of Heaven.

The Poetical Works Of Thomas Parnell book

Yet e'en these heroes, mischievously gay, Lords of the street, and terrors of the way; Flush'd as they are with folly, youth, and wine, Their prudent insults to the poor confine; Afar they mark the flambeaux's bright approach, And shun the shining train, and golden coach.

Though grief and fondness in my breast rebel When injured Thales[1] bids the town farewell, Yet still my calmer thoughts his choice commend; I praise the hermit, but regret the friend; Resolved, at length, from vice and London far, To breathe in distant fields a purer air, And, fix'd on Cambria's solitary shore, Give to St David one true Briton more.

For the scientist, see Thomas Parnell scientist. Young Hermes next, a close-contriving god, Her brows encircled with his serpent rod; 70 Then plots, and fair excuses, fill'd her brain, The views of breaking amorous vows for gain, The price of favours, the designing arts That aim at riches in contempt of hearts; And for a comfort in the marriage life, The little, pilfering temper of a wife.

Patrick's, Dublin, on 16 Aug. Could'st thou resign the park and play, content, For the fair banks of Severn or of Trent, There might'st thou find some elegant retreat, Some hireling senator's deserted seat; And stretch thy prospects o'er the smiling land, For less than rent the dungeons of the Strand; There prune thy walks, support thy drooping flowers, Direct thy rivulets, and twine thy bowers; And, while thy grounds a cheap repast afford, Despise the dainties of a venal lord: There every bush with Nature's music rings, There every breeze bears health upon its wings; On all thy hours Security shall smile, And bless thine evening walk and morning toil.

Yours is the charge, ye fair! That is an interesting fact that such schools were opened only for boys. Pleas'd we behold another Reynolds shine, Lamented Lawrence! He was the son of Thomas Parnell of Maryborough, Queen's County now Port LaoiseCounty Laoisa prosperous landowner who had been a loyal supporter of Cromwell during the English Civil War and moved to Ireland after the restoration of the monarchy.

A serpent girdled round he wore, The tail within the mouth, before; By which our almanacks are clear That learned Egypt meant the year.

Singer's edit. He carved the turf to mould a manly frame, And stole from Jove his animating flame. As yet his winters had not shed Their silver honours on his head; He just had got his pinions free From his old sire Eternity.

Her gay descent the man perceived afar, Wondering he ran to catch the falling star; But so surprised, as none but he can tell, Who loved so quickly, and who loved so well. There lies the lightning glance that Rodney flung, There sleep the thunders of a Chatham's tongue.

All times their scenes of pompous woe afford, From Persia's tyrant to Bavaria's lord. To fill my rising song with sacred fire, Ye tuneful Nine, ye sweet celestial quire!

Poetical Works Thomas Moore

Nor deem, when Learning her last prize bestows, The glittering eminence exempt from foes; See, when the vulgar 'scapes, despised or awed, Rebellion's vengeful talons seize on Laud. The prose portion of the book was a satire upon false critics, and was aimed especially at Lewis Theobald and John Dennis.

Ye nymphs, whose bosoms beat at Milton's name, Whose generous zeal, unbought by flattering rhymes, Shames the mean pensions of Augustan times! Nor be the names unhonour'd in the page Of faithful memory, calling back her age With tears of holy joy and love divine!

Say what sweet voice the wearied heart shall cheer, Win the glad smile, or wake affection's tear; What form shall glide within the half-clos'd door, What small light footstep press the silent floor: What ivory arm around his neck shall twine, And say, or seem to say,———this hour is mine!

Time-honour'd thou shalt be!

Remote from man with God he passed his days Prayer all his business, all his pleasure, praise. Books found: Augustus still survives in Maro's strain, And Spenser's verse prolongs Eliza's reign; Great George's acts let tuneful Cibber sing, For Nature form'd the poet for the king.
