To a Brother of the Author's.

1 WE wish you joy like us to meet
2 The spring in all its gay attire;
3 The fields to range in rural sport;
4 The manly thought, and bold design.
5 To us belong the woods and groves,
6 Each gentle art, and kind reply;
7 In truth and innocence unite,
8 Our minds improve but guess for whom.
