Yet peace-new music floats on Æther's wings;
Say, is it Harmony herself who sings?
No! while enraptur'd Sylphs the song inspire,
'Tis POPE who sweetly wakes the filver lyre,
To meling notes, more musically clear
Than Ariel whisper'd in Belinda's ear.
Too foon he quits them for a sharper tone;
See him, though form'd to fill the epic throne
Decline the sceptre of that wide domain,
To bcar a lictor's rod in satire's train,
And, throuded in a milt of moral spleen,
Behold him close the visionary scene.
