HOMER. On the Inside. North. Weleome, peaceful, calm retreat!

On the Hermitage Door. Far from common ills of Fate,

Solitudo quam dilecta! Welcome joys before unknown ;

Hinc in cælum via recta, Ev'ry pleasure, ev'ry blessing,

Procul est insanitatis Ev'ry bliss that's worth possessing,

Et theatrum vanitatis. Here delights, and here alone.

Et quæ supra sunt videho. Dangerous greatness, gilded woe,

Mecum angeli cantabunt Tortur'd with ambitious care.

Cæli Dominum laudabunt. Here, such empty dreams despising,

O si semper sie sederem,

Mundi turbas nec viderem ; Far from falling as from rising,

Me dum tollent angelorum I avoid the tempting snare.

Grex ad Paradisi chorum, Heaps of wealth amass'd in vain

Et, ut sanctus eremita
Give the sordid Miser pain,

Dulei requiescam vita.
Waking, dread his bosom rends :
But Content my wishes bounding,

On the Inside.
And soft Peace my bed surrounding,

O lost to Virtue, lost to manly thought, Balmy sleep my call attends.

Lost to the noblest sallies of the soul,

Who think it solitude to be alone,
Fraud and envy, grief and fear,
Breed no dire coufusion here;

Communion sweet!
Exil'd from the guilty town,
Cheerful studies time beguiling,

In a Natural Bower.
Wing the moments ever smiling,

Written in Old English Characters, "Till my latest sand falls down.

O come not to these peacefulle howres In the same Temple. West.

Of blissefulle melancholie. Here smiling Health anoid the gales For if ye spurne the ioyes serene On purple pinions'flies.

From Solitude aceruinge, Here rural sports the mind engage,

Mixe with the busie worlde againe, To pass the pleasing day,

But quarrelle not with humane-kinde

In a Bower of Box, For little faultes offendinge ;

Better to beare with what ye finde, I love my little boxen bower,

Than marre it in the mendinge. Fringed with April's early flower ;
Soe shalle ye walke eche crowded courte, On its leaves of glossy green
And smile at bumane follie ;

The climbing sunbeams shed their sheen: Or pleas'd, like mee, to bowres resorte,

Cool its shade, its shelter warm,
And feaste on melancholie,

In Summer's beat, or Winter's storm.

Under a large spreading Tree in the Wood.
And this our life, exempt from public Within my little boxen bower

Around my little boxen bower. On whose fair birth the Graces mild, Should I leave my boxen bower And ev'ry Muse prophetic smil'd. Panting up the paths of Power, And sure there seem of human kind, Puff*d with empty pomp of Pride,

Some born to shun the solemn strife ; Blind Ambition for my guide, Some for amusive tasks design'd, Even in Splendour's gaudy glare

To soothe the certain ills of life ; Cushion'd on the couch of Care, Grace its lone vales with many a bud- Might I pot bewail the hour ding rose,
