EXTEMPORE ON ARRIVING IN THE COUNTRY.

1 Can silent pleasures give my love the smile
2 Of sweet content, of happiness serene?
3 Can Anna's care, her tenderness beguile
4 The languor of a solitary scene?
5 Yes, for with anxious love I'll watch his eye,
6 His will, his wishes in his features trace;
7 With fond impatience to prevent them fly,
8 My sweet reward, a smile from his dear face.
