Epistle II To a Lady Of the Characters of Women

Elegy to the Memory of an Unfortunate Lady

What beck'ning ghost, along the moon-light shade    Invites my steps, and points to yonder glade
'Tis she
—but why that bleeding bosom gor'd,    Why dimly gleams the visionary sword
Oh ever beauteous, ever friendly

In that soft season, when descending
Call forth the greens, and wake the rising flow'rs;

Ode on Solitude

Happy the man, whose wish and careA few paternal acres bound,
Content to breathe his native air,                                In his own ground

Whose flocks supply him with attire,
