When now the business of the field is o'er, The trumpets sleep, and cannons cease to roar, When ev'ry dismal echo is decay'd, And all the thunder of the battle laid-Attend, auspicious Prince, and let the museIn humble accents milder thoughts infuse. Others, in bold prophetic numbers skill'd, Set thee in arms, and led thee to the field, My muse expecting on the British strandWaits thy return, and welcomes thee to land: She oft has seen thee pressing on the foe, When Europe was concern'd in ev'ry blow-But durst not in heroic strains rejoice-The trumpets, drums, and cannons drown'd her voice: She saw the Boyne run thick with human gore, And floating corps lie beating on the shore: She saw thee climb the banks, but try din vainTo trace her hero through the dusty plain, When through the thick embattled lines he broke, Now plung'd amidst the foes, now lost in clouds of smoke. O that some muse, renown'd for lofty verse, In daring numbers would thy toils rehearse!Draw thee belov'd in peace, and fear'd in wars, Inur'd to noon-day sweats, and midnight cares!But still the godlike man, by some hard fate, Receives the glory of his toils too late-Too late the verse the mighty act succeeds, One age the hero, one the poet breeds. A thousand years in full succession ran, Ere Virgil rais'd his voice, and sung the manWho, driv'n by stress of fate, such dangers boreOn stormy seas, and a disastrous shore, About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
