Clar. Love, thy godhead I adore,

Source of sacred passion ;
But will never bow before

Those idols, 'wealth, or fashion.
May, like me, each maiden wise,

770
From the fop defend her ;
Learning, sense, and virtue prize,

And scorn the vain pretender. Har. Why the plague should men be sad, ... While in time we moulder ?

Grave, or gay, or vex'd, or glad,

We ev'ry day grow older. .... Bring the flask, the music bring, vi doti Foy will quickly find us;

Drink, and laugh, and dance, and sing, 780

And cast our cares behind us.
Dian. How shall I escape-so naught,

On filial laws to trample;
I'll e'en curtsey, own my fault,

And plead papa's example.
Parents 'tis a hint to you,

Children oft are shameless ;
Oft transgress-the thing's too true
But are you always blameless ?

790 One word more before we go;

Girls and boys have patience ;
You to friends must something owe,

As well as to relations.

These kind gentlemen address

What tho' we forgave 'em
Still they must be lost, unless

You lend a hand to save 'em.
