WILLIAM COWPER, ESQ.
FRENCH OF MADAME DE LA MOTHE GUION.
"Tis folly all!—let me no more be told
Canals, and fountains, and delicious vales, Green slopes and plains, whose plenty never fails;
Deep rooted groves, whose heads sublimely rise,
Smooth downs, whose fragrant herbs the spirits cheer,
Curl'd into monstrous forms, the seaman dreads!
