MIRA AT A REVIEW
OF THE GUARDS IN HYDE-PARK.

Let meaner beauties conquer ſingly ſtill,
But haughty Mira will by thousands kill ;
Thro’ armed ranks triumphantly ſhe drives,3
And with one glance commands a thouſand lives:
The trembling heroes nor reſiſt nor fly,
But at the head of all their ſquadrons die.6
