ON THE COMPLETION OF HIS SEVENTY-FOURTH VOLUME
N golden times, contending Poets vied
1. 10 fing the ffero of their Country's birth':
But, in thefe days of party-praise and pride, -
And place him in the conftellation there with SwiFT;
Mine be it, then, though with a junior Mufe
"The grateful Sons of Letters yet anborr
Thee, URBAN, for thy genius shall adore;
Their Country's name, and fwell the rifing fores
Range the ftarr'd Poles, or through unbounded pace
Or whether they, more fav'rites yet of Heav'n,
Like SHARSPEARE or like MILTON feek to vie,.
Twine round their brows the bays that never die.
Here fhall the Poet frame the votive lay,
To URBAN's praise in ages yet to come;
Hence, long as Time fhall hold his waining glass,
Their choiceft gifts together fhall entwine,
Blefs'd be their names who feek the Public Good,
Sweeps all before it in a flood of light.
Urge boldly on, by fair renown be led,
Juft as of old in claffic days when try'd,
Proud as Scamander, when, Jove's offspring faid, Rife, Ilion, rife!" and Ilion rear'd her head. Dec. 31, 1804.
