((PERSIAN ECLOGUES. Written originally for the ENTERTAINMENT OF THE
Ladies pf TAURIS. And now first translated, &c.
Printed for J. Roberts, in ^Warwick-Lane. 1742.
It is with the Writings of Makind, in
some Measure, as with their Complexions
or their Dress, each Nation hath a
Peculiarity in all these, to distinguish it
from the rest of the World.
((ECLOGUE the FIRST.
SELIM; or, the Shepherd's Moral.
SCENE, a Valley near ^Bagdat.
TIME, the Morning. ))
Ye ^Persian Maids, attend your Poet's Lays,
And hear how Shephers pass their golden Days:
Not all are blest, whom Fortune's Hand sustains
With wealth in Courts, nor all that haunts the Plains:
Well may your Hearts believe the Truths I tell,
"TisVirtue makes the Bliss, where'er we dwell.
