Landscape
 
Ever charming, ever new,
When will the landscapes tire the view?
        Dyer.—Grongar Hill, Line 103.

New scenes arise, new landscapes strike the eye,
And all th’ enliven’d country beautify.
        Thomson.—Castle of Indolence, Canto II. Stanza 27.

Heavens! what a goodly prospect spreads around,
Of hills, and dales, and woods, and lawns, and spires,
And glittering towers, and gilded streams, till all
The stretching landscape into smoke decays!
        Thomson.—Summer.
  3
’Tis night, and the landscape is lovely no more.
        Beattie.—The Hermit, Verse 4.

Thus I (which few, I think, can boast)
Have made a landscape of a post.
