I.
A II I whence this impotence of mind,
AY Sure beauty proper!; uefta’d,
Jo learning is a foe ;
Scwun and Hope nedcAed lie,
can no more lupply
The place of NANCY CROW,
’i he place of NANCY CROW.
IL
Le* those wh' wou’d the depth explore,
Of modern wit, or ancient lore,
To foreign ciih'.atcs g.>;
To me let none propofc this talk,
No proof of nature’s force I alk,
But charming NANCY CROW.
HL
Through the smooth fui face of a dream,
When brighten’d by the morning beam,
We fee the lands below ;
Thus in her face, as smooth, as dear,
(Enlightend by her eyes) appear
The thoughts of NANCY CROW.
IV. . ‘
Had nature, now too careless grown.
Each year rhe feeds of beauty sown,
Sore time wodd not be flow ;
Since fourteen summers cou’d produce,
A plant so fair, lo fit for use
As charming NANCY CROW.
V.
Alas ! said Flora with a tear,
No more my roses mud appear,
No more my lillies blow;
For Oh 1 their boat ted red and white,
Their foftnefs, fragrance, all unite
In lovely NANCY CROW.
VI.
Let those whom coarser nerves fuAain,
O er hills, and dales, through rough and plain,
Pursue the bounding doe ;
'Tis mine to chafe a sprightly fair,
(Like Daphne crown'd with golden hair)
Coy, tempting NANCY CROW.
