THE

POPE

ANTHOLOGY.

1701-1744 A.D.

ON A CERTAIN LADY AT COURT.

[Henrietta HOWARD, COUNTESS OF SUFFOLK.]

I KNOW the thing that 's most uncommon !

(Envy, be silent; and attend !) I know a reasonable woman;

Handsome and witty, yet a friend !

Not warped by passion, awed by rumour;

Not grave through pride, or gay through folly; An equal mixture of good humour

And sensible soft melancholy.

' Has she no faults then,' Envy says, “Sir?'

Yes, she has one, I must aver!
When all the World conspires to praise her;

The woman 's deaf, and does not hear!

ODE ON SOLITUDE.

[This imitation of HORACE's Ode, Beatus integer, &c., was written in 1700, when young ALEXANDER POPE was not twelve years old. The present is his revised text of 1736.]

HAPPY the man! whose wish and care

A few paternal acres bound; Content to breathe his native air

In his own ground:

Whose herds, with milk; whose fields, with bread;

Whose flocks supply him with attire : Whose trees, in Summer yield him shade;

In Winter, fire.

Blest! who can unconcern'dly find

Hours, days, and years slide soft away In health of body, peace of mind,

Quiet by day,

Sound sleep by night; study and ease

Together mixt; sweet recreation ;
And innocence, which most does please,

With meditation.

Thus, let me live, unseen! unknown!

Thus, unlamented, let me die!
Steal from the world; and not a stone
