Poem by Mary Robinson

Stanzas Inscribed to Lady William Russell

NATURE, to prove her heavn-taught powr, 
That gems the earth, and paints the flowr; 
That bids the soft enchanting note 
Steal from the LINNETS downy throat; 
That from young MAYS ambrosial wings, 
The balmy dew of HYBLA flings; 
With partial hand, each charm combind, 
To deck THY Form, and grace THY Mind. 

She gave her ROSE, to tint thy cheek, 
Her witching smile, her blushes meek; 
She bade thy ruby lips impart 
The chastest precepts of the heart; 
She taught thy dulcet voice to prove, 
The soothing softness of the DOVE; 
While thro each wondrous beauty stole
