The rape of the lock pg 37.jpg


Rape of the Lock.


CLOSE by those Meads for ever crown'd with Flow'rs,

Where Thames with Pride surveys his rising Tow'rs,

There stands a Structure of Majestick Fame,

Which from the neighb'ring Hampton takes its Name.

Here Britain's Statesmen oft the Fall foredoom

Of Foreign Tyrants, and of Nymphs at home;

Here Thou, great Anna! whom three Realms obey,

Dost sometimes Counsel take—and sometimes Tea.
