HALL the great foul of NEWTON quit this earth,

To mingle with his stars; and ev'ry Muse, Astonish'd into silence, shun•the weight Of honours due to his illustrious name? But what can man ?--Ev’n now the sons of light, 52 In strains high-warbled to seraphic lyre, Hail his arrival on the coast of bliss. Yet am not I deterr'd, tho' high the theme, And sung to harps of angels, for with you, Ethereal flames ! ambitious; I aspire. In nature's general fymphony to join.

And what new wonders can ye show your guest! Who, while on this dim spot, where mortals toil VOL. II.
