POETICAL WORKS

OF

JOHN DRYDEN.

IN THREE VOLUMES,

WITH THE LIFE OF THE AUTHOR.

Hear how Timotheus'vary'd lays surprise,
And bid alternate passions fall and rise.....
The power of music all our hearts allow,
And what Timotheus was is DRYDEN now. POPE.

Behold where DRYDE IT'S Jess presumptuous car.
Wide o'er the fields of glosy vers
Two coursers

ethereal races
With necks in thunder cloată’d, any long-resounding pace,
Hark, his hands the lyre explore!
Bright-ey'd Fancy hov'ring o'er,
Scatters from her pictur'd urn
Thoughts that breathe, and words that burn,
But ah! 'tis heard no more.

GRAY.

VOL. III.

EDINBURG:

AT THE Apollo Press, BY THE MARTINS,

Anno 1778.
