WHAT dire Offence from am'rous Causes springs, -- What mighty Contests rise from trivial Things, -- I sing -- This Verse to C --, Muse! is due; -- This, ev'n Belinda may vouchfafe to view: -- Slight is the Subject, but not so the Praise, -- If She inspire, and He approve my Lays. -- Say what strange Motive, Goddess! cou'd compel -- A well-bred Lord t'assault a gentle Belle? -- Oh say what stranger Cause, yet unexplor'd, -- Cou'd make a gentle Belle reject a Lord? -- And dwells such Rage in softest Bosoms then? -- And lodge such daring Souls in Little Men?
