[ocr errors][merged small][merged small]

I am a slave, a favored slave
At best, to share his splendor, and seem very blest;

Then weary of these fleeting charms and me,
There yawns the sack, and yonder rolls the sea.
What am I then a toy for dotard's play,
To wear but till the gilding frets away?"

BYRON'S CORSAIR.

our nurses, and in all ages our friends."
