ARTICLE XVII.
Translated by Master J. Owsdul, Markinton.

TO LICINIUS.
TF thou wouldst have thy life-bark glide'. .
1 Safely along the stream of time,
Beware the rocks and chafing tide,

Avoid the ocean-path sublime. The wise, Licinius, love to dwell

'Tween the extrenes of high and base, Nor hide them in the sordid cell,

Nor court the hall that riches grace.
They know what ills beset the proud,

That loftiest pines by winds are riv'n, .
And the high mountain, capp'd with cloud,
· First meets the thunderbolt of Heav'n.
Th’experienc'd mind misfortune fears,

While gales of pleasų e seem to blow;
And when dread Sorrow's form appears,

Teaches the heart with hope to glow. For 'tis the same almighty hand

Lets loose the winds and scattering hail, Who gives the spring her magic wand,

To strew with choicest flow’rs the vale. VOL. II.
