ODE

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 ineffe tual to affuage

Remorseless Faction's harpy rage?
But the fell dæmons, 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 sped,
Ev'n fiends that crown with rev'rence

fee,
Where Virtue confecrates 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 unfurl'd,
B held our coasts from ravage free,
Protected by the guardian Sea,
Where Commerce spreads her golden

The broken stast that coward Malice

rear'd Shall co thy fame eternal lustre give, Inscribe on hist'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-

py day,
Selected from the circling year,

To celebrate a name to Britain dear.
From Britain's Sons demands a feftive

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

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

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

to wound us there,

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 fee, 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 mond the warbling recd
of Peace.
