There rests from toil its long-unpractised wing,
Chaunting sweet liberty's delightful lay,
So lightly pricketh on his way yon wight,
Venus, how far more elevate than thine ;
Him now they welcome to their green retreats,
Oh may it be my lot to wander near,
March 1, 1806.
ODE FOR THE NEW YEAR, 1809.
BY J. H. PYE, ESQ.
Performed on her Majesty's Birth-day.*
Full-orb'd in equinoctial skies,
See Chronicle, p. 34.
Scorn every weak resource of human toil,
But when, by native fences barr'd
We saw the torrent wild of war,
And scatter ruin wide and far ;
The legions fly, the bulwarks fall;
ODE FOR HIS MAJESTY'S BIRTH-DAY..
BY J. H. PYE, ESQ.
While Europe with dejected eye
Beholds around her rural reign,
• See Chronicle, p. 157.
Whilom of peace the fair domain,
Or if with trembling hope she cast
spear, and wave the crest; Yet lies her course through war's ensanguined flood; Yet must she win her way through carnage and through blood.
Ah! happier Britain, o'er thy plain
Behold the field of ruin round them lie;
And while to this auspicious day
A nation's vows in choral pæan join,
Yet not to selfish thoughts confined,
In the great cause of injured liberty!
my sons, and to the world declare, When suff'ring freedom calls, Britannia's arms are there.
