|On Levens banks, while free to rove,|
And tune the rural pipe to love,
I envied not the happiest swain
That ever trod the Arcadian plain.
Pure stream! in whose transparent wave
My youthful limbs I wont to lave;
No torrents stain thy limpid source,
No rocks impede thy dimpling course,
That sweetly warbles oer its bed,
With white, round, polishd pebbles spread.
SmollettOde to Leven Water.
