VERSES occasioned by seeing a GROTTO built by Nine Sisters.
1 SO much this building entertains my sight,
2 Nought but the builders can give more delight;
3 In them the master-piece of Nature's shown,
4 In this I see Art's master-piece in stone.
5 O! Nature, Nature, thou hast conquer'd Art;
6 She charms the sight alone, but you the heart.
