·ER the smooth enamel'd green,
Where no print of step hath been,
Follow me as I fing,

And touch the warbled ftring,
Under the shady roof
Of branching elm star-proof.
Follow me,

Her deity
Such a rural Queen
All Arcadia hath not seen,

III.' SONG
Ymphs and Shepherds dance no more

By sandy Ladon’s lillied banks,
On old Lycæus or Cyllene hoar

Trip no more in twilight ranks,
Though Erymanth your loss deplore,
A better soil shall give ye thanks.

.
From the stony Mænalus
Bring your flocks, and live with us,
Here

ye

shall have greater grace,
To serve the Lady of this place.
Though Syrinx your Pan's mistress were,
Yet Syrinx well might wait on her.

Such a rural Queen
All Arcadia hath not seen.
