Upon Miss Nanny Molly Bacon

(continued ....)

Thy happy shape with perfect ease,
Grows small & charming by degrees.
Cupid thy evíry look befriends
& Grace on all thy steps attends.

But oh! When from the pretty mouth
Flow sense, good nature, wit and truth
Convinc'd the sounds must be divine
We bow before the Paphian shrine
