O* Miss H O L L E S, </ Redbridge, rear
■pOR wealth to the Indies let others re
A treasure more rich I've in view
could e'er boast,
CM doubtless has ciiarms; yet it's charms
must decay, Crmpar'd to the charms cf my fair: To ten thousand guineas of fam'd Anna's
Deaf Holies, I vow, I'd prefer.
If wit and rood scr.fe, with true modesty join'd,
(In the sex to be met with so rare) i;.ive the fortune to pieasc, such perlcctions you'll find, Such perfections you'll meet with in her.
If the will to oblige, and the scar to offend, Have to merit the least claim or share;
If ludeness you less than civility love, These perfections you'll meet with in l.er.
If a countenance chearful, a stranger to frowns,
Yon to prize to it's opposite dare; Isa hcauy affection for virtue has pow'r To charm, you'll be charm'd, taith, with her.
But if slander, like most of the sex, you admire;
Or if pride you to meekness prefer;
J11W- y you'll find these, J think; but
You'll ne'erwill m;et with them in her.
Not the di'monds, so priz'd, that Colconda affords,
As her ever, with such lustre e'er glow; The ruby looks faint, if apply'd to her lips; And her tcetli like fair ivory shew.
Ye critic* in beauty, 'tis no more than truths
NotVcnus's flow'r can excel The sine modest blush by kind nature beslow'd,
That her cheeks, sweetly-dimpled, reveal.
Her hand—ih, I wisli—but I fear 'tis in vain—
That lilly-white hand file would give To me, who adore her: thus perfectly blest,
How happy with Holies I'd lire.
4 CONSOLATORY EPJSTLE.
XKT HEN troubles on a dear friend's back
Tliat you, clear friend, in love are croft,
I have a little tale, my friend,
The fact, besides, you may rely on,
I once a sighing stiepheid knew, Who VMS as much in love as you; And, like your nymph,tr:e wench was pretty. Gay, sprightly, talkative and witty: So subject was he to her power, That he could live for lull' an hour Without the sight of her b-ight eyes. No more than gamester wit .out dice. But he, poor fellow, figh'd in vain j She took to church another swain, And (which effected most his head) Would take the happy rogua to bed. Pocr wretched Colin stampt, and swore He'd hang himself behind t' e door; Puli'd out liij garters, view'd their length, And would-but that hefear'd their stiength. Then to the river's side he posted, And all along the green barks coasted, To find a nice convenient place To end his sorrows with good gr?ce. At length he found a proper s|>ot; And, just about to leap, bethought Himself—" Will not my fellow swains "Say Colin was an ass for's pains, ** Without I.is mistress were at bottom, "To jump into the river ?—Hot 'em— "What's that to t! em? A man for ease "Might do as much to drown his fleas. "However, ere my life J end, "1 will the fair a letter fend, "And tell her how, in sober sadness, "She's slung my very foul to madness; "And that, since I cannot come at her, . "I'll quench my passion in cold water; "Thar, for her sa'.-e, I'll never think *' Of any woman but for chink, "And, though I am resclv'd to die, "PTl fitst revenge my destiny.
But foitune now turn'd cat-in-pan, And Colin's made a happy man. The wretch, who stole his mistress' heatt, Turns out not worth a quaiter part; And ere love's myst'ries were compteated, A piior wife the fact defeated; For scarce the chamber-door was shut, When, in the stieet, they heard a rout; A tout as if ten thousand bears, Or devils were got by the ears, (tforinjur'd wives will make their part good, Korean by mortal power be withstood) The bridegroom heard her dreaded voice, Abandon'.! all his hop'J for joys; He left his virgin-bride forsaken, And slunk away to save his bacon.
The nymph, thus baulk'd, her pride abates: ^yitlds to Cjlin and <ne fates j
And what this night site lost with sorratv»
