py day,

FOR THE YEAR M,DCC,XCVI.
BY HENRY JAMES PYE, ESQ. POET LAUREAT.

Where is immortal Virtue's meed,

Th' unfading wreath of true renown,
Best recompence by Heaven decreed

For all the cares that wait a crown;
If Industry, with anxious zeal,
Still watchful o'er the public weal;
If equal Justice awful arm,
Temper'd by Mercy's seraph charm,
Are ineffectual to assuage

Remorseless Faction's harpy rage ?
But the fell demons, urg'd by hell's behest,
Threaten, with frantic arm, the Royal Pa.

triot's breast !
Yet not, Imperial George, at thee

Was the rude bolt of malice fped,
Ev'n fiends that crown with rev'rence

fee,
Where Virtue consecrates th' annoint-

ed head
No at thy bosom's fondest claim,
Thy Britain's peace, their shafts they aim;
Palo Envy, while o'er half the world
War's bloody banners are unfurld,
Beheld our coasts from ravage free,
Protected by the guardian Sea,
Where Commerce spreads her golden

stores,
Where fleets waft triumph t&our shores;
She saw, and fick’ning at the light,
Wish'd the fair prospect of our hopes to

blight,
Sought out the object of our dearest care,
Found where we most could feel, and tried

to wound us there.

The broken ftaft that coward Malice

rear'd Shall to thy fame eternal lustre give, Inscribe on hift'ry's page thy name re

ver'd,
And bid it there with endless blazon

live.
For there our fons remoteft race

In deathless characters shall tracę,
How Britain's baffled foes proclaim'd their

hate,
And deem'd her Monarch's life the bulwark

of the state; Now strike a livelier chord—This hap

Selected from the circling year,

To celebrate a nane to Britain dear.
From Britain's Sons demands a festive

lay.
Mild Sov’reign of our Monarch's soul.
Whose eye's meek radiance can controul
The pow'rs of care, and grace a throne,
With each calm joy to life domestic

known,
Propitious Heav'n has o'er thy head
Blossoms of richer fragrance shed
Than all th' assiduous Muse can bring,
Culld from the honey'd stores of Spring:
For see, amid wild Winter's hours,

A bud its filken folds display.
Sweeter than all the chalic'd flow'rs

That crown thy own ambrosial May,
O may thy smiles, bleft infant, proye

Omens of Concord, and of Love,
Bid the loud strains of martial triumph cease,
And tune to softer mood the warbling recd
of Peace.
