Woman! Thou loveliest gift that here below
3Ian can receive, or Providence bestow!
To thee the eearliest offerings belong:
Of opening eloquence, or youthful song:;
Lovely partaker of our dearest Joys!
Thyself a grift whose pleasure never cloy"
"Whose wished for presence gently can appease
The wounds of penury or slow disease
"Whose loss is such as through life's tedious way
No rank can compensate, no wealth repay;
Thy figure beams a ray of heavenly light
To cheer i the darkness of our earthly night;
Hail, fair Enslaver! at thy changing glance
Boldness recedes and timid hearts advance.
Monarchs forget their scepter and their sway.
And sages melt In tenderness away.
