FOUNDED ON A FACT, WHICH HAPPENED IN JANUARY, 1779.
WHERE Humber pours his rich commercial
Black as the mine, in which he wrought for bread.
To buy a cock-whose blood might win him more;
Now farewell oaths, and blasphemies, and lies! He quits the sinner's for the martyr's prize. That holy day was wash'd with many a tear, Gilded with hope, yet shaded too by fear. The next his swarthy brethren of the mine Learn'd, by his alter'd speech-the change divine! Laugh'd when they should have wept, and swore the day
Was nigh, when he would swear as fast as they.
PLANT OF VIRGIN'S-BOWER DESIGNED TO COVER A GARDEN-SEAT. 1793.
THRIVE, gentle plant! and weave a bower
And deck with many a splendid flower
Thou camest from Eartham, and wilt shade (If truly I divine)
Some future day the' illustrious head
Of Him who made thee mine.
A PLANT OF VIRGIN'S-BOWER.
Should Daphne show a jealous frown
Thy cause with zeal we shall defend,
To purify their wine some people bleed
ON MR. CHESTER, OF CHICHELEY.
TEARS flow, and cease not, where the good man
And justly-few shall ever him transcend
END OF VOL. I.
