| Soon shall thy arm, unconquerd steam! afar|
Drag the slow barge, or drive the rapid car;
Or on wide-waving wings expanded bear
The flying chariot through the field of air.
| The Botanic Garden. Part i. Canto i. Line 289.|
| No radiant pearl which crested Fortune wears,|
No gem that twinkling hangs from Beautys ears,
Not the bright stars which Nights blue arch adorn,
Nor rising suns that gild the vernal morn,
Shine with such lustre as the tear that flows
Down Virtues manly cheek for others woes.
| The Botanic Garden. Part ii. Canto iii. Line 459.|
