XXVIII. Let Europe fav'd the column high erect, Than Trajan's higher, or thar Antonine's ; Where fembling art may carve the fair effect, And full atchievement of thy great designs. In a calm hear'n, and a serener air, Sublime the Queen shall on the fummit stand, From danger far, as far remov'd from fear, And pointing down to earth her dread command, All winds, all storms that threaten human woe, Shall sink beneath her feet, and spread their rage XXIX.
[below. There fleets Thall ftrive by winds and waters toft, Till the young Austrian on Iberia's strand, Great as Æneas on the Latian coaft, Shall fix his foot : and this, be this the land, Great Jove, where I for ever will remain (The empire's other hope' shall say) and here Vanquish'd, intomb'd I'll lie; or crown'd, I'll reign O virtue, to thy British mother dear! Like the famod Trojan suffer and abide; For Anne is thine, I ween, as Venus was his guide.
XXX. There, in eternal characters engrav'd, Vigo, and Gibraltar, and Barcelone. Their force destroy'd, their privileges sav'd, Shall Anna's terrors, and her mercies own: : Spain, from th’ usurper Bourbon's arms retriev'd, Shall with new life and grateful joy appear, Numb'ring the.wonders which that youth atchier'de Whom Anna clad in arms, and sent to war ;
Whom Anna sent to claim Iberia's throne :
XXXII. Brabantia, clad with fields, and crown'd with tow'rs, With decent joy shall her Deliv'rer meet ; Shall own thy arms, great Queen, and bless thy pow'ray Laying the keys beneath thy subject's feet. Flandria, by plenty made the home of war, Shall weep her crime, and bow to Charles restor’d; With double vows shall bless thy happy care, & In having drawn, and having sheath'd the sword.. From these their lister provinces shall know, How Anne supports a friend, and how-forgives a foc.
XXXIII. Bright swords, and crested helms, and pointed spears In artful piles around the work shall lie ; And shields indented deep in ancient wars, Blazon'd with signs of Gallic heraldry ; And Aandards with distinguish'd honours bright, Marks of high pow'r and national command,
Which Valois' sons, and Bourbon's bore in fight,
XXXV. Beneath, great Queen, oh! very far beneath, Near to the ground, and on the humble base, To save herself from darkness, and from death, That Muse desires the last, the lowest place ; Who tho’unmeet, yet touch'd the trembling string; For the fair fame of Anne and Albion's land, Who durft of war and martial fury sing: And when thy will, and when thy subject's hand Had quell'd those wars, and bid that sury cease ; Hangs up her grateful harp to.conquest, and so peace.
