Take the name of that hero who dreadful in war
Spread the terror of Rome thro the nations afar,

Type an word in box below

His kingdom a meadow & a dewdrop sustains him.

And ever repays its possession with pain.

And what each observer discovers in you.

And lastly that word which no lover can bear
Nor I from this charmer with patience can hear.

Type an word in box below
The initials of these ye lads and ye lasses
Will show you a girl that description surpasses.
The lily combin'd with the new-open'd rose
In her bosom's displayed - on her cheek sweetly glows.
Her pencil e'en fancy throws by in despair
When fondly attempting to copy my fair.
