* Ad .CHRISTINAM Suecorum Reginam nomine

Cromwelli *.
D Ellipotens Virgo, septem Regina Trionum,
D Christina, Arctoï lucida stella poli,
Cernis quas merui dura fub casside rugas,
< Utque fenex armis impiger ora tero; ..
Invia fatorum dum per vestigis nitor,''

Exequor et populi fortia jusfa manu.
A& tibi submittit frontem reverentior umbra ;

Nec sunt hi vultus Regibus usque truces.

TRANSLATION, from TOLAND's Life of Milton.
D RIGHT martial maid, queen of the frozen zonc,
D The northern pole supports thy shining throne;
Behold what furrows age and steel can plow,
The helmet's weight oppress’d this wrinkled brow.
Through fate's untrodden paths I move, my hands
Still act my free-born people's bold commands : :
Yet this stern made to you submits his frowns,
Nor are these looks always severe to crowns.

# These verses were sent to Christina Queen of Sweden with Cromwell's picture, and are by some ascribed to Andrew Marvel, as by others to Milton: but I should rather think they were Milton's, being more within his province as Latin Secretary.

A FRAG, . A FRAGMENT, from the Italiani

Addressed to a young Lady, at Florence, who did not

understand English. W H EN, in your language, I, unskill'd, address

VV The short-pac'd efforts of a trammel'd Muse; Soft Italy's fair critics round Me press,

And my mistaking passion thus accuse. Why, to our tongue's disgrace, does thy dumb love

Strive, in rough sound, soft meaning to impart? He must select his words who speaks to move,

And point his purpose at the hearer's heart. Then laughing they repeat my languid lays

Nymphs of thy native clime, perhaps—they cry,
For whom thou hast a tongue, may feel thy praise;

But we must understand ere we comply!
Do thou, my soul's soft hope, these triflers awe!

Tell them, 'tis nothing, how, or what, I write ;
Since love from silent looks can language draw,

And scorns the lame impertinence of wit.
