Some banish’d lover, or some captive maid.

Spreads his light wings, and in a moment flies.

Suck my last breath, and catch my flying soul.

    Not chaos-like together crush’d and bruis’d,
But as the world, harmoniously confus’d,
Where order in variety we see,
And where, though all things differ, all agree.

3605
    A mighty hunter, and his prey was man.

    Nor Fame I slight, nor for her favours call;
She comes unlooked for if she comes at all.

    Unblemish’d let me live, or die unknown;
O grant an honest fame, or grant me none!
          The Temple of Fame. Last line.
