Yet peace-new music floats on Æther's wings;
Say, is it Harmony herself who sings?
No! while enraptur'd Sylphs the song inspire,
'Tis POPE who sweetly wakes the silver lyre,
To melting noces, more musically clear
Than Ariel whisper'd in Belinda's car.
Too foon be quits them for a sharper tone;
See him, though form’d to fill the epic throne
Decline the sceptre of that wide domain,
To bear a lictor's rod in satire's train,
And, shrouded in a milt of moral spleen,
Behold him close the visionary scene.
