See! Oxford lifts her Head fublime,

Majeftic in the Mofs of Time;

Nor wants there Gracia's better Part,

'Mid the proud Piles of antient Art;

Nor decent Doric to difpenfe

New Charms 'mid old Magnificence;

And here and there foft Corinth weaves

Her daedal Coronet of Leaves;

While, as with rival Pride, her Tow'rs invade the Sky.
