EXTRACTS FROM AN OPERA: 5., by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Oh, I am frighten'd with most hateful thoughts
Last Line: And warpt the ivory of a juno's neck.


Oh, I am frighten'd with most hateful thoughts!
Perhaps her voice is not a nightingale's,
Perhaps her teeth are not the fairest pearl;
Her eye-lashes may be, for aught I know,
Not longer than the May-fly's small fan-horns;
There may not be one dimple on her hand;
And freckles many; ah! a careless nurse,
In haste to teach the little thing to walk,
May have crumpt up a pair of Dian's legs,
And warpt the ivory of a Juno's neck.
