A FRAGMENT, from the Italian;

Addreffed to a young Lady, at Florence, who did not understand English.

WHEN, in your language, I, unfkill'd, addrefs

The short-pac'd efforts of a trammel'd Muse;

Soft Italy's fair critics round Me press,

And my mistaking paffion thus accuse.

Why, to our tongue's difgrace, does thy dumb love
Strive, in rough found, foft meaning to impart?
He must felect his words who fpeaks to move,
And point his purpose at the hearer's heart.

Then laughing they repeat my languid lays

Nymphs of thy native clime, perhaps they cry,
For whom thou haft a tongue, may feel thy praise;
But we must understand ere we comply!

Do thou, my foul's soft hope, these triflers awe!
Tell them, 'tis nothing, how, or what, I write
Since love from filent looks can language draw,
And fcorns the lame impertinence of wit.
