"For lo! conducted by the Laughing Loves,/ This cool retreat his Musidora sought:/ Warm on her cheek the sultry season glowed;/ And, robed in loose array, she came to bathe/ Her fervent limbs in the refreshing stream. . . . With wild surprise,/ As if to marble struck, devoid of sense,/ A stupid moment motionless she stood;/ So stands the statue that enchants the world;/ So bending tries to veil the matchless boast,/ The mingled beauties of exulting Greece."--Thomson's Seasons. [P. 6.] N.A. [P. 19.]
