" Where lavish Nature the protecting hand

Of art demanded; shewed him how to raise
His feeble force by the mechanic powers;
To dig the mineral from the vaulted earth ;
On what to turn the piercing rage of fire,
On what the torrent and the gathered blast :
Gave the tall, ancient forest to his axe;
Taught him to chip the wood, and hew the stone: -
Nor storpel at barren, bare necessity;
But, still advancing bolder, led him on,
To pomp, to pleasure, elegance and grace,
And bade him Le THE LORD OF ALL BELOW."

Thompson.
