Bodie Pori PubA Pias

[blocks in formation]

See! Oxford lifts her Head sublime,
Majestic in the Moss of Time ;
Nor wants there Græcin's better Part,
"Mid the proud Piles of ancient Art ;
Nor decent Doric to dispense
New Charms 'mid old Magnificence ;
And here and there soft Corinth weaves
Her dædal Coronet of Leaves ;
While, as with rival Pride, her Tow'rs invade the
Sky.

WARTON's Ode.
