• Teach my best reason, reason,
WITH sweetest fragrance flow'd the liquid air,
When woo'd by sober eve I sought the shade, Where lucid moon-beams, thro' the pendant boughs, Flecker'd with gloom, in motley figures play'd;
Nights in her loveliest robes array'd,
To Fancy's perehanit still hilows

Each care forgot (oh! luxury divine,
How sweet to harmonize with peace benign,
The reins of thought to fancy given,
Amid the starry host of heaven,
