A FRAGMENT FOUND IN A LECTURE-ROOM, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Where deep in mud cam rolls his slumbrous stream
Last Line: Cetera desunt.

Where deep in mud Cam rolls his slumbrous stream,
And Bog and Desolution reign supreme,
Where all Boe[o]tia clouds the misty brain,
The Owl Mathesis pipes her loathsome strain.
Far far aloof the frighted Muses fly,
Indignant Genius scowls and passes by:
The frolic Pleasures start amid their dance,
And Wit congealed stands fix'd in Wintry trance.
But to the sounds with duteous haste repair
Cold Industry, and wary-footed Care,
And Dullness, dosing on a couch of Lead,
Pleas'd with the song uplifts her heavy head,
The sympathetic numbers lists awhile,
Then yawns propitiously a frosty smile...
Cetera desunt.
