BY

WILLIAM COWPER,

OF THE INNER TEMPLE, ESQ.

Sicut aqu& tremulum labris ubi lumen ahenis
Sole repercussum, ant radiantis imagine lunat,
Omnia pervolitat late loca, jamque sub auras
Erigitur, summique ferit laquearia tecti.

Virg. Æn. viii.
So water, trembling in a polish d vase,
Reflects the beam that plays upon its face;
The sportive light, uncertain where it falls,
Now strikes the roof, now flashes on the walls.
