THE WISH. "Tis not the gaudy dress can charm,

Nor equipage the soul cau please;
Content can lull each wild alarm,

Unaided still by these.
Full oft beneath the splendid robe,

The heart with wrathful feeling throbs;
Or envy's pangs the bosom probe;
Or sorrow breathes in sobs.
Vol. VI. No. XXXVI.

E'en meatness can with pomp reside:

Give me a lot unlike to this;
Be mine nor poverty nor pride,

But competence and bliss.
Let gentle woman's cheering smile

Give ev'ry joy a warmer glow,
Whose breast admits no thought of guile:
Be mine this lot to know!
