Verses ty'd about a Fawn's Neck, which was presented to a very young Lady, call'd by her Friends the Ivory Maid.

1 As thro' this sylvan Scene I stray'd,
2 I saw and lov'd the Iv'ry Maid:
3 And hearing that she fled from Man,
4 I begg'd this Form of mighty Pan;
5 To try, by ev'ry winning Art,
6 To gain Possession of her Heart;
7 When raging Tempests cloud the Sky,
8 Transported at her Feet to lie;
9 When Phoebus brightens up the Weather,
10 To trip it o'er the Lawns together.
