10 I do i PURSUING beauty, men descrysta

The distant shore, and long to prove (Still richer in variety)

The treasures of the land of love.

We women like weak Indians stand,
Inviting from our golden coast
The wandering rovers to our land';
But she who trades with them is lost.

With humble vows they first begin,
Stealing unseen into the heart;
But by possession settled in,

They quickly act another part.

For beads and bawbles we resign

In ignorance our shining store; Discover nature's richest mine,p

And yet the tyrants will have more.

Be wise, be wise, and do not try

How he can court, or you be won;

For love is but discovery;

When that is made, the pleasure's done.

Whose heart can love without deceit,

And I will range the world around,
To sigh one moment at her feet.

And if her cheek be rosy bright,

While truth within her bosom lies, W
I'll gaze upon her morn and night,
Till my heart leave me through my eyes!

Show me on earth a thing so rare,
I'll own all miracles are true:

To make one mind sincere and fair,

Oh! 'tis the utmost Heaven can do!!

Then boast, fair FLAVIA, boast thy face,
Thy beauty's only store,

Each day that makes thy charms decrease
Will yield to STELLA more.

IN vain, dear CHLOE, you suggest
That I inconstant have possest

Or loved a fairer she;

Would you with ease at once be cured
Of all the ills you've long endured,
Consult your glass, and me.

-If then you think that I can find
A nymph more fair or one more kind,
You've reason for your fears;

But if impartial you will prove
To your own beauty or my love,

How needless are your tears!

With wanton flight the curious bee

From flower to flower still wanders free,
And, where each blosom blows,
Extracts the juice from all he meets ;
But, for his quintessence of sweets,
He ravishes the rose.

So, my fond fancy to employ
On each variety of joy,

From nymph to nymph I roam;
Perhaps see fifty in a day:

These are but visits that I pay,
For CHLOE is my home.
