  • DRYADES; or, The Nymphs Prophecy. A POEM.

    Si canimus Sylvas, Sylvæ sint consule dignæ. Virg.

    Bacchum in remotis carmina rupibus
    Vidi docentem (credite posteri)
    Nymphasque discentes, & aures
    Capripedum Satyrorum acutas.
    Evæ! recenti mens trepidat metu.
    Hor.
    This Scene had some bold Greek, or British Bard
    Beheld of old, what Stories had we heard
    Of Fairies, Satyrs, and the Nymphs their Dames,
    Their Feasts, their Revels, and their am'rous Flames?
    'Tis still the same, altho' their airy Shape
    All but a quick Poetick Sight escape.
    Cowper's-Hill.
