|"Now let us range both far, and wide,
|"Thro' all the gardens boasted pride.
|"Here Jasmines spread the silver flow'r,
|"To deck the wall or weave the bow'r,
|"The Woodbines mix in am'rous play,
|"And breathe their fragrant lives away.
|"There rising Myrtles form a shade;
|"There Roses blush, and scent the glade;
|"The Orange, with a vernal face,
|"Wears ev'ry rich autumnal grace;
|"While the young blossoms here unfold,
|"There shines the fruit like pendant gold;
|"Citrons their balmy sweets exhale,
|"And triumph in the distant gale.
