See! Oxford lifts her Head sublime,
Majestic in the Moss of Time;
Nor wants there Græcid'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.
