To low ambition, and the satisfaction of kings.
Let us (since lifestyles can little extra supply
Than simply to glance approximately us and to die)
Expatiate unfastened o’er all this scene of man;
A powerful maze! yet no longer and not using a plan;
A wild, the place weeds and plants promiscuous shoot;
Or backyard tempting with forbidden fruit.
Together allow us to beat this plentiful field,
Try what the open, what the covert yield;
The latent tracts, the giddy heights, explore
Of all who blindly creep, or sightless soar;
Eye Nature’s walks, shoot Folly because it flies,
And capture the manners dwelling as they rise;
Laugh the place we needs to, be candid the place we can;
But vindicate the methods of God to man.
