OXFORD: Printed for J. Cooke, near the Clarendon Printing-House. See! Oxford lifts her Head sublime,

Majestic in the Moss of Time;

Nor wants there Grœcids better Part,

'Mid the proud Piles of antient 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. ALBANHall Page no
