O keep thy Saul frae puny Strife,
X And heeze thee out of vulgar Life,
We in a Morning-Dream,
W hifper’d our Will concerning thee,
. To Marius ftretch’d beneath a Tree,
Hard by a pop’Jing Stream

He full of me {hall point the Way,
Where thou a Star {halt fee,
The Influence of whofe bright Ray,
Shall wing thy Mufe to flee.
Mair fpeer na, and fear na*
But fet thy Mind to Refl:
Afpire ay flill high’r ay,
And always hope the beft.
