A nightingale, that all day long

A noble theme demands a noble verse
Another Leonora once inspired
An Oyster, cast upon the shore

A peasant to his lord paid yearly court
Apelles, hearing that his boy
A poet's cat, sedate and grave.
A raven, while with glossy breast
Art thou some individual of a kind
As birds their infant brood protect
As in her ancient mistress' lap.
Ask what is human life-the sage replies
As on a hill-top rude, when closing day 467
As one, who, long in thickets and in brakes 215
A spaniel, Beau, that fares like you.
A Spartan, his companion slain

Jealous, and with love o'erflowing

Lady! it cannot be but that thine eyes
Laurels may flourish round the conqueror's

Naples, too credulous, ah! boast no more 446
Night! how I love thy silent shades
No longer I follow a sound.
No mischief worthier of our fear
No more shall hapless Celia's ears
None ever shared the social feast
Nor oils of balmy scent produce
No strength of Nature can suffice
Not a flower can be found in the fields
Obscurest night involved the sky.
Of all the gifts thine hand bestows
Oft we enhance our ills by discontent
O God, whose favourable eye

See where the Thames, the purest stream.
Shall I begin with Ah, or Oh?

She came-she is gone-we have met
Silent I sat, dejected, and alone
Since life in sorrow must be spent
Sin enslaved me many years

Sing, Muse, if such a theme, so dark, so

Sin has undone our wretched race

Sleep at last has fled these eyes
So have I seen the maids in vain

Sweet stream, that winds through yonder

The greenhouse is my summer seat
The lady thus addressed her spouse
The lapse of time and rivers is the same

The Lord receives his highest praise
The Lord will happiness divine
The lover, in melodious verses
The new-born child of Gospel grace
The noon was shady, and soft airs
