ODE for the New YEAR 1768.
APOLLO DISAPPOINTED. By William Whitehead, Esq; Poet Laureat.
at the praises of Mifs READ, ET the voice of Music breathe,
Down dropt APOLLO * from the skies, Hail with long the new-born Year!
To know if that ilhustrious maid
Surpass'd him, or if gods told lies.
To Jermyn street, the critic came,
Disguis'd; and fore against his will,
A filent plaudit gave the dame,
And own’d the triumph of her skill.
Ha! by a woman beat, he cried,
But soon I'll mortify her pride,
Or I'm not christncd 'Squire APOLLO.
Venus shall for her picture fit,
And dash the artist's soul with shame;
Such heav'nly airs the cannot hit
So cancels half her former fame.
Juit then, he glanc'd his
And, in a corner of the room,
Her Grace of HAMILTON elpied,
In the full glow of youthful bloom.
His Godship (so reports the cale)
Survey'd the piece with lengthen'd chops, Amidst his flocks, whom Nature leads
And curi'd with disappointment pale, To flow'ry feasts on mountains' heads,
Took a good sniff of hartshorn-drops. Th' exuking thepherd lics;
ah, reader, thou hast seen, perhaps, And to thi horizon's utmost bound
A cur securn'd from choking sheep ; Rolls his eye with transport round,
How 'twixt his legs his tail he claps ;Then lifts it to the skies.
How fond from company to keep. Let the voice of Mufic breache!
Sp round and round with cautious squint, Twine, ye (wains, the feltal wreath!
From Jermyn street APOLLO stole; Britain Niall no more complain
And would not, ev'n for all the mint, Of niggard harvests, and a fading year :
Have met a single Christian fout. No more the miser hoard his grain,
'Sdeath (cried the God with huge grimace) Regardless of the peasant's tear,
What a d-n'd baulk ! -For true, tho'odd Whofe hand laborious tillid the carth, The pencil that can paint her Grace, ['tis, And gave those very treasures birth.

Let each receive his 'custom'd pay :
Confirm we i", concurring votes Kept a huge pompous coach of state
To each his daily peck of oats : of most enormous bulk and weight:
Besides, omit we by no means And on the çimes of public joy,
Proportion'd quantities of beans ; To wheel about the pond'rous toy,
Nor yet warm mathes when we chuse 'em, He kept befide a noble string
Nor Bracken's balls when pleas'd to use 'em ; of horses fit to draw a king;
For as 'tis likely from full feeding, All of high blood, all beasts of breedingi
At times, diseases may be breeding, Bar vicious from excess of feeding;
'Tis right for every horse that is fick, Of course intractable and heady:
Who finds the food should find the phyfic. Yet in one point perverfely steady,
These previous articles now clos'd, Viz. each good fced was true and hearty
Here prudent Di'mond interpos'd, To his own jaterest and his party;
Long fam'd for his contempt of pelf, Nay, this curs'd spirit had poffels'd
And views which center'd not in felf,
“ How chang'd at present!” (or no more >
To such degree each sturdy beast,
Wears he that mark which once he wore)
Quoth he, (wrapp'd round with many a clout Unless in partnership be drew
His greafy heels, the horses gout) With those of his confederate crew,
“ Snug now ourselves and our dependants, Though thus the clumsy and the clever,
Shall we neglect our dear descendants ? IIl-paird oft hobbled on together.
Nay e'en from feripture we should leara, Hence, when the coach was order'd out,
For our own households due concern; Buck would refuse to match with Stout,
Left we incur then, to our Thame,
Of in fidels th'accursed name,
Provide we next (if such your will is)
For all our present colts and fillies; And then uncheck'd in his career,
No matter, though for this supply While he tugg'd on the vast machine
We drain our master's coffers dry :
Stretch we the grant too, if ye please,
Then to their coltlings in entail,
Till issue of such issue fail.

And, more c'express their joy of heart, Though oft he whirl'd it one would think
All let at once the obftreperous fmt; Juft o'er the pitfall's headlong brink;

Re-echo'd to th' unmanner'd found; Would ay, There, there, by G-, it goes! And now adjusted their pretensions, And as ftiff Buck would ne'er fubmit
And thus secur’d their long-breath'd pensions, But on these terms to champ the bit,
Like porkers fattening in the sty, Stout in return was full as Cullen,
On their fat rumps at case they lie; Nor the fame harness would hc pull in,
Uplitter'd to their ears in Araw, Unless by cautious Duke preceded,
Yet not a single heart will draev. Or by pacific Sawney headed.
Dogs! to reduce you all to reason, The body-coachmad hence unable
I wish, at least, for some short feason, To rule the refractory stable,
That in your present master's stead, Was fore'd to leave the saucy brutes
Too meek to tame fo rough a breed, To terminate their own disputes;
Too mild to curb your factious fpirit, And when they deign'd to wear their traces, Stern boisterous Cromwell
from the dead,
Too good to treat you as ye merit,
That I might see you bound and skip ( For in their anger all had wit)
Beneath their disciplining whip; Some terms of union to admit;
That I might see your pamper'd hides Which, that more firmly they might bind,
Flogg'd, till from out your furrow'd fides
Spun, in each part, the sizy blood,
Too rich from oth and copious food;
That, thus let out at all these lluices, As Di'mond, Sawney, Duke), however It may purge off its vicious juices; Determin'd not to work together,
While I thould hear you, ai cach jerk, Yet by chese presents are agreed,
Cry, Laci no more, we'll work, we'll work. Together peaceably to fecd:
