FLIRT and PHIL;
A Decision for the LADIES,
A Wit, by learning well refind,
A beau, but of the rural kind,
Her judgment, or her senses.
Young sprightly Flirt, of blooming mien,
Went-when his glass advis'd him:
Silvia had wit, had spirits too;
Suspended held the scales:
But turn up-heads or tails.
STANZAŚ to the Memory of an agreeable
LADY, buried in Marriage to a Person undeserving her.
WAS always held, and ever will,
By fage mankind, discreeter
Than undergo a greater.
When mortals dread diseases, pain,
And languishing conditions ;
Of physic-and physicians ?
Rather than lose his whole eítate,
He that but little wise is,
To taxes and excises.
Our merchants Spain has near undone
For loft ships not requiting :
The loss of blood-in fighting !
With num'rous ills, in single life,
The bachelor's attended :
And much the case is mended!
Poor GRATIA, in her twentieth year,
Fore-seeing future woe,
Before an ape
COL E MIR A.
A Culinary ECLOGUE.
Nec tantum Veneris, quantum studiosa culina.
Ights fable clouds had half the globe o'erspread,
And silence reign'd, and folks were gone to bed: When love, which gentle Neep can ne'er inspire, Had feated Damon by the kitchen fire,
Pensive he lay, extended on the ground; The little lares kept their vigils round;
