Original Poetry. O'er the bleak moorlands shall record thy toil, To foreign climes see thy bright harvetts born, Converting barren heath to fertile fuil :

While Heav'n propitious sends a rich return, Nor new the theme ; oft with poetic fire

Oh! blot from mem'ry the tragic tale ! The bards of old have swept the founding lyre. Nor deem that Famine ever could prevail Warm in his praise whose patriotic zeal, O'er the rich blessings of all-bountcous Heav'n; Raises fresh harvests for the public weal, Would man improve what God has freely givin! Guides the rude peasant in his first eflay, Methinks I sing of Zembla's frozen shore, Darts thro' the forest-gloom the cheering ray, Or of some savage tribe the fate deplore; And with new treasures glads the eye of day. Yet have we heard our Northern neighbours The fimple pleasures of the golden age,

tell, Once sung melodious the Ascrean sage ;

In one (ad year how num rous victims fell, Arcadian Shepherds led their Hucks along, By pinching Want consumed; the scanty blade Charm'd by the music of the poet's song,

Cropt from the cattle lent penurious aid; To rural cares and to the lhepherd's praile

But when the roots and juicy herbage failed, Theocritus attuned his Doric lays.

Famine in all her horrid forms affailed; In verse majettic, melody divine,

Far from his home the fainting peasant lies, The Mantuan Bard invokes the Sacred Nine;

Aud fcaice to Heav'n can raise his dim funk With nic: precision marks the peasant's tuil, eyes ; And teaches how to plough and low the soil.

On the wild heath the stiff ’ning corpse was found; The brightest genius of th’ Augustan age,

Expiring orphans press the sterile ground; Selects this theme to ornament his page.

In vain the mother her ihrunk bo um tries,

Clasp'd in her arms, the pining infant dies. From stagnant pools, where Pestilence resides,

Prepare, ye Nine, th' unfading bay pse pare, And meagre Famine her wan visage hides,

Hafte, crown the patriot band, whose generous See Desolation quit her dark comiin, And seek in forcign climes fome distant reign.

Like some bold centinel, preserves its fland, Where late the folitary bird of prey, Wing'd his bold fight along the lonely way,

To guard from Famine's scourge their native

land. The desert smiles, in richest garh array'd, And Cultivation own her arduous toil repaid;

Long shall Britannia hold in memory dear So in the wat'sy main, concealed from day,

The name of Bakewell, long his worth revere, The Ruby long with holds its dazzling ray,

While her rich meads, improved in comely forn, Thro’ floating sea-weed lights the coral cave,

The sheep, the steer, and gen'rous Iteed adorn. And lurks fecure beneath the founding wave, No mean applause industrious Young may claim, Till some bold mariner the decp essays,

Who points to British Youth the path of fame; Grasps the rich treasure, and his toil repays. Nor can we soon forget a Ducket's toil, At yonder huit, close by the moorland's fide,

Whose fertile genius best subdues the soil. A hoary swain and numerous race relide;, No more thall trav’llers eye the barren waste, The aged cottager delights to hear

Nor with fresh speed, o'er fick’ning deserts haite, The jocund plough-boy whittling in his ear, ; Charm'd with the blooming pea and fragrant' While the long train of reapers cross the plain, bean, The joyful right revives his youth again ; Where thick’ning ranks of corn enrich the scene, Complacent smiles the venerable swain,

They gaze delighted and forget their toil, Blefses his offspring and their infant train, While cultivation cheers the barren foil. Points to the upland crown'd with waving corn, So from Amboyna blows the fpicey gale, Recites how long, thro'wint’ry months forlorn, Luxuriant breezes fill the passing sail, The rude wind whittl'd o'er the bar en tern;

Th' enraptur’d seamen hail the wel ome shore, How oft the gloomy heath he travers’d o'er, And dream of thipwreck and of forms no more. Gath'ring from diftant scenes a scanty store:

Enfield, 087. 19, 1796.
