To Miss A. H—.

1 SHort was their stay, of high descent they sprung,
2 Two beaut'ous
* Miss , and Miss .
nymphs and thus they sweetly sung:
3 Peace o'er each scene peace o'er the pleasant fields;
4 No shades! to me more pleasure ever yields.
5 O'er all thy minds the passions calmly flow;
6 As Leven's! stream tranquil to whence we go.
