26 AN ESSAY ON C R I T I C I S M In every work regard the writer's end, Since none can compass more than they intend; And if the means be just, the conduct true, Applause, in spite of trivial faults, is due. As men of breeding, sometimes men of wit, T' avoid great errors, must the less commit: Neglect the rules each verbal critic0 lays, For not to know some trifles, is a praise. Most critics, fond of some subservient art, Still make the whole depend upon a part: They talk of principles, but notions prize, And all to one loved folly sacrifice.

Jupiter et laeto descendet plurimus imbri. Virgil. 9. Dr Samuel Garth, author of the Dispensary, was one of the first friends of the author, whose acquaintance with him began at fourteen or fifteen. 0 15. Non canimus surdis, respondent omnia sylvae. Virgil. 8 PASTORALS The woods shall answer, and their echo ring. The hills and rocks attend my doleful lay, Why art thou prouder and more hard than they? The bleating sheep with my complaints agree, They parched with heat, and I inflamed by thee. The sultry Sirius0 burns the thirsty plains, While in thy heart eternal winter reigns.

Not bubbling fountains to the thirsty swain, Not balmy sleep to labourers faint with pain,0 Not showers to larks, or sunshine to the bee, Are half so charming as thy sight to me. Go, gentle gales, and bear my sighs away! Come, Delia, come; ah why this long delay? Through rocks and caves the name of Delia sounds, Delia, each cave and echoing rock rebounds. Ye powers, what pleasing frenzy soothes my mind! Do lovers dream, or is my Delia kind? ' Next Aegon sung, while Windsor groves admired; Rehearse, ye Muses, what yourselves inspired.
