Tu nidum servas; ego laudo ruris amoeni
Rivos & musco circumlita saxa nemusque.
Quid quæris? vivo, regno, simul ista reliqui
Quæ vos ad cælum effertis rumore secundo.

Hor. Epist. x. Lib. i.

56 O Nature, how, in every charm supreme,

Thy votaries feast on raptures ever new!
Oh for the voice and fire of seraphim,

To sing thy glories with devotion due !

Blest be the day I ’scap'd the wrangling crew
From Pyrrho's maze and Epicurus' sty;

And held high converse with the god-like few,
Who, to th' enraptur'd heart, and ear, and eye,
Teach Beauty, Virtue, Truth, Love, and Melody."

BEATTIE.
