An Ode in Honour of St. Cecilia's Day.
'Twas at the royal feast for Persia won
The godlike hero sate
On his imperial throne :
His valiant peers were plac'd around;
Their brows with roses and with myrtles bound:
(So should desert in arms be crown'd)
The lovely Thais, by his side,
Sate, like a blooming eastern bride,
In flower of youth and beauty's pride.
None but the brave,
None but the brave deserves the fair.
