1 THE potent Lord, that this bright villa plann'd,
2 Exhibits here a Paradise regain'd;
3 Whate'er of Verdure have Hills, Lawns, or Woods,
4 Whate'er of Splendor, Buildings, Flow'rs, or Floods,
5 Whate'er of Fruits the Trees, of Birds the Air,
6 In blissful union are collected here:
7 All with such harmony dispos'd, as shews,
8 That in the midst the Tree of Knowledge grows.
