ABRAHAMCOWLEY.

IN POUR VOLUMES.

FROM THE TEXT OF DR. SPRAT, &C.

WITH THE LIFE OF THE AUTHOR."

Begin the song, and ftrike the living lyre !
Lo! how the Years to come, a num'rous and well-fitted quire !
All hand in hand do decently advance,
And to my song with smooth and equal measures dance.
Whilft the dance lafts, how long soe'er it be,
My Mufick's voice shall bear it company,
Till all gentle notes be drown'd
In the lan trumpet's dreadful sound. THE RESURRECTION.
COWLEY does to Jove belong,
Jove and COWLEY claim my long.
The Muses did young COWLEY raise,
They stole thee from thy nurse's arms,
Fed thee with facred love of praise,
And taught thee all their charms;
As if Apollo's self had been thy fire,
They daily rock'd thee on his lyre. VERSES TO COWLEY.
