This is that incense of the heart, Dear Chloe, wlule the busy crowd,

Whose fragrance-smells to heav'n.
The vain, the wealthy, and the proud,

We'll ask no long protracted treat,
In folly's maze advance;

Since winter-life is seldom sweet;
Tho'singularity, and pride,

But, when our feast is o'er,
Be call our choice, we'll step aside,

Grateful from table we'll arise,
Nor join the giddy dance.

Nor grudge our sons, with envious eyes, From the gay world, w'ell of retire,

T'he relics of our store.
To our own family and fire,

Thus, hand in hand, thro' life we'll go;
Where lord-our hours employs;

Its checker'd paths of joy and wo,
No noisy neighbor--enters here,

With cautious steps, we'll tread;
No intermeddling stranger--neor,

Quit iis vain scenes, without a tear,
To spoil our heart-felt joys.

Without a trouble, or a fear,
If solid harp ness--we prize,

And mingle with the dead. Within our breast--this jewel lies;

While conscience, like a faithful friend, And they are fools, who roam:

Shall, thro' the gloomy vale attend,
The world-has nothing to bestow;

And cheer our dying breath;
From our own selves--our joys must flow, Shall, when all other corrons cease,
And that dear hat, our home,
