VERSES DESIGNED FOR A WATCH CASE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Could but our tempers move like this machine
Last Line: And everlasting joy, when time shall be no more.
Subject(s): Watches


COULD but our tempers move like this machine,
Not urg'd by passion, nor delay'd by spleen;
But, true to nature's regulating pow'r,
By virtuous acts distinguish ev'ry hour;
Then health and joy would follow, as they ought,
The laws of motion, and the laws of thought;
Sweet health, to pass the present moments o'er;
And everlasting joy, when time shall be no more.
