What is in man, what various frailties here
Must try his faith to win a heav'nly crown.

Then ye, whose duty 'tis in youthful minds,
Docile and apt to fix, for after life,
Each principle of conduct, filly fram'd
To aid, and cheer its ever-changing scenes,
Oh' ne'er forget, amid the virtues fair,
Which grace our nature, and peculiar bloom
On British soil, that Loyalty is one,
Which, whatso'er Philosophy may teach,
Should never, never quit the patriot breast.

Is this too much digressive ? Does the song
Neglect its stated aim ? A moral Muse,
That feels for human wrongs, must surely feel,
In these licentious tines, how fit it is
Due censure should be thrown from every lip
On daring projects, principles, and guilt,
Whose deep enormities, and novel forms,
Alike astonish and offend mankind.
Blameless she then presumes her ethic strain
A while delaying to recount, that still
Something to soil whate'er, we lovely call
This scene of things permits; that, like the good
By policy held out, our sacred day
Has its debasements. For, behoid! too nigh,
A train of truant youth, full-aptly form'd
With bois’trous revelry to discompose
It's tranquil joys; nor spar'd the oath profane,
With shuffling inight, some toss the bounding ball;
Or, gambling, rave in noisy harsh disputes;
Or with rude scoffs insult the better bred,
That pass them by. But, haply, ev'ry one
Is not thus idly bent. Far more enjoy
Their leisure as beseems them, in calm scenes,
Which sooth at once and recreate the mind.
And some there ever are, whose ardent love
Of literary arts, and the fair fame,
Which dignifies their eminent display,
Who quitting noisy haunts, find highest bliss
In paths, sequester'd, and where thought at large
May freely wander, sure its slightest traits
Will meet due notice from a kindred breast.
And these are pupils of the neighbouring schools
Of classic erudition, where each morn,
Brisk as the sun, and early as his ray,
They studiously repair; and now are met,,
Free froin the world's intrusion, to discourse

On various themes their literate care demand.
Vol. IX. Churchm. Mag. Aug. 1805,

But still, tho' toil and studious days and nights
Must ever wait on learning's brightest aid,
To meet success, the task appals them not.
Their spirit rises as the hill ascends
Of generous emulation and reward :
And, the bright summit in their ardent eye,
They, mutual in their aims with mutual cheers
Mount up it undismay’d. Such zeal still shines,
Where genius genuine, and the love of arts
Inspire the youthful mind. And now they talk
Of ancient days, and bards of high i'enown;
Castalia's silver streams; the warb'ling fount
Of sacred Hippocrene, along whose banks
The tuneful Muses ever love to stray ;
Or of immortal Sages, who have trod
Lyceum's piny walks, or the green verge
Of Acadenius, and from thence have soar'd
Heights empyreal with unwearied wing.
