There fair Exotics, nurs'd with Coft and Toile
Delightful Mixture ! charm the curious Sight,
And all the Beauties of the World unite.
Hither resort, ye Virtuous, Learn'd and Fair,
Crop the sweet Blooms, and breathe the fragrant Air.
But, timely warn'd, a near Inclosure fly,
Whose outward Semblance cheats the heedless Eye.
There choaking Weeds exile the blushing Rose,
The Poppy there its fleepy Influence shows ;

The deadly Nightshade breathes Infection round, 2
And fapless Stalks o'erspread the tainted Ground.

, each Ornament dispose,
A laging Bloom, the Monthly Nolegay shows ;
From chosen Flowers the mingling Odours rise,
And varied Beauty charms the wond'ring Eyes!
In thy Collection GRECIAN Blossoms blow,
With vivid Blush ANACREON's Roses glow ;
The Roman Myrtle ever-verdant blooms,
Fair GALLIC Lillies waft their rich perfumes :
In native Sweets the British Woodbing smiles,
And LILLIPUTIẢN Laurels grace thy Toils !

But all the Care, the Judgment, you bestow,
