Chaste to her husband, frank to all beside,
A teeming mistress, but a barren bride.
Blest paper-credit! last and best supply!
That lends corruption lighter wings to fly!
Blest with each talent, and each art to please,
And born to write, converse, and live with ease
The Muse but served to ease some friend, not wife,
To help me through this long disease, my life;
Why did I write? what sin to me unknown
Dipt me in ink, my parents', or my own?
A man's true merit 'tis not hard to find;
But each man's secret standard in his mind,
...
Like Cato, give his little Senate laws,
And sit attentive to his own applause.
Damn with faint praise, assent with civil leer,
And, without sneering, teach the rest to sneer;
...
But thousands die without or this or that,
Die, and endow a college, or a cat:
...
Up to her godly garret after sev'n,
There starve and pray, for that's the way to heav'n.
