BOOK III.

What walker shall his mean ambition fix Now oaths grow loud, with coaches coaches jar, On the false lustre of a coach and six ? 570 | And the smart blow provokes the sturdy war; Let the vain virgin, lur'd by glaring show,

From the high box they whirl the thong around, Sigh for the liveries of th’ embroider'd beau. And with the twining lash their shins resound :

See yon bright chariot on its braces swing, Their rage ferments, more dangerous wounds they With Flanders mares, and on an arched spring,

try, That wretch, to gain an equipage and place,

And the blood gushes down their painful eye. 40 Betray'd his sister to a lewd embrace.

And now on foot the frowning warriors light, This coach, that with the blazon'd 'scutcheon And with their ponderous fists renew the fight; glows,

Blow answers blow, their cheeks are smear'd with Vain of his unknown race, the coxcomb shows.

blood, Here the brib'd lawyer, sunk in velvet, sleeps ;

Till down they fall, and grappling roll in mud. The starving orphan, as he passes, weeps ;

580 So when two boars, in wild Ytene ' bred, There flames a fool, begirt with tinsel slaves, Or on Westphalia's fattening chesnuts fed, Who wastes the wealth of a whole race of knaves; Gnash their sharp tusks, and, rouz'd with equal fire, That other, with a clustering train behind, Dispute the reign of some luxurious mire; Oves his new honours to a sordid mind !

In the black flood they wallow o'er and o'er, This next in court-fidelity excels,

Till their arm’d jaws distil with foam and gore. 50 The public rifles, and his country sells.

Where the mob gathers, swiftly shoot along, May the proud chariot never be my fate,

Nor idly mingle in the noisy throng: If purchas'd at so mean, so dear a rate !

Lurd by the silver hilt, amid the swarm, Or rather give me sweet content on foot,

The subtle artist will thy side disarm.
Wrapt in my virtue, and a good surtout ! 590 Nor is the flaxen wig with safety worn;

High on the shoulder, in a basket borne,
Lurks the sly boy, whose hand, to rapine bred,
Plucks off the curling honours of thy head.

Here dives the skulking thief, with practis'd sleight,
TRIVIA,

And unfelt fingers make thy pocket light. 60
Where's now the watch, with all its trinkets,

flown?

And thy late snuff-box is no more thy own.
OP WALKING THE STREETS BY NICHT.

But, lo! his bolder thefts some tradesman spies, O TRIVIA, goddess ! leave these low abodes, Swift from his prey the scudding lurcher fjes; And traverse o'er the wide ethereal roads;

Dextrous he'scapes the coach with nimble bounds, Celestial queen! put on thy robes of light, Whilst every honest tongue “stop thief !” reNow Cynthia nam'd, fair regent of the night. So speeds the wily fox, alarm'd by fear, (sounds At sight of thee, the villain sheaths his sword, Who lately filch'd the turkey's callow care ; Nor scales the wall, to steal the wealthy hoard. Hounds following hounds grow louder as he flies, O may thy silver lamp from Heaven's high bower And injur'd tenants join the hunter's cries. 70 Direct my footsteps in the midnight hour!

Breathless, he stumbling falls. Il-fated boy ! When Night first bids the twinkling stars appear, Why did not honest work thy youth employ? Or with her cloudy vest enwraps the air, 10 Seiz'd by rough hands, he's dragg'd amid the rout, Then swarms the busy street; with caution tread, And stretch'd beneath the pump's incessant spouta Where the shop-windows falling threat thy head, Or, plung'd in miry ponds, he gasping lies, Now labourers home return and join their strength Mud chokes his mouth, and plaisters o'er his eyes. To bear the tottering plank, or ladder's length; Let not the ballad-singer's shrilling strain Still fix thy eyes intent upon the throng,

Amid the swarm thy listening ear detain : And, as the passes open, wind along.

Guard well thy pocket; for these Syrens stand Where the fair columns of St. Clement stand, To aid the labours of the diving hand;

80 Whose straiten'd bounds encroach upon the Strand; Confederate in the cheat, they draw the throng, Where the low penthouse bows the walker's head, And cambric handkerchiefs reward the song. And the rough pavement wounds the yielding But soon as coach or cart drives rattling on, tread;

20 | The rabble part, in shoals they backward run. Where not a post protects the narrow space, So Jove's loud bolts the mingled war divide, And, strung in twines, combs dangle in thy face; And Greece and Troy retreat on either side. Summon at once thy courage, rouze thy care, If the rude throng pour on with furious pace, Stand firm, look back, be resolute, beware.

And hap to break thee from a friend's embrace, Forth issuing from steep lanes, the collier's steeds Stop short; nor struggle through the crowd in rain, Drag the black load; another cart succeeds; But watch with careful eye the passing train. 90 Team follows team, crowds heap'd on crowds ap Yet 1, (perhaps too fondi) if chance the tide pear,

Tumultuous bear my partner from my side, And wait impatient till the road grow clear. Impatient venture back; despising harm, Now all the pavement sounds with trampling feet, I force my passage where the thickest swarm. And the mix'd hurry barricades the street. 30 Thus his lost bride the Trojan sought in vain Entangled here, the waggon's lengthen'd team Through night, and arms, and flames, and hills of Cracks the tough barness; bere a ponderons beam

To cross the way where carts and coaches roll; 170 From side to side by thrusting elbows tost,

Yet do not in thy hardy skill conside, Shall strike his aching breast against a post; Nor rashly risque the kennel's spacious stride ; Or water, dash'd from fishy stalls, shall stain Stay till afar the distant wheel you hear, His hapless coat with spirts of scaly rain.

Like dying thunder in the breaking air; But, if unwarily he chance to stray

Thy foot will slide upon the miry stone, Where twirling turnstiles intercept the way, And passing coaches crush thy tortur'd bone, The thwarting passenger shall force them found, Or wheels enclose the road; on either band And beat the wretch half breathless to the ground. Pent round with perils, in the midst you stand,

Let constant vigilance thy footsteps guide, 111 And call for aid in vain ; the coachman swears, And wary circumspection guard thy side; (night, And carmen drive, unmindful of thy prayers. 180 Then shalt thou walk, unharm'd, the dangerous Where wilt thou turn? ah! whither wilt thou fly?

The damsel's knife the gaping shell commands,

Though you through cleanlier allies wind by day, While the salt liquor streams between her hands. To shun the hurries of the public way,

How short is life! how frail is human trust! How wilt thou lift to Heaven thy eyes and hands,
Is all this pomp for laying dust to dust?

When the long scroll the surgeon's fees demands !
Where the nail'd hoop defends the painted stall, or else (ye gods, avert that worst disgrace !)
Brush not thy sweeping skirt too near the wall : Thy ruin'd nose falls level with thy face!
