BOOK IV.

As the toft veffel on the ocean rowls,
When dark the night, and loud the tempeft howls,
When the lorn mariner in every wave
That breaks and gleams, forbodes his watery grave;
But when the dawn, all filent and serene,
With soft-paced ray dispels the shades obscene,
With grateful transport fparkling in each eye,
The joyful crew the port of safety spy.
Such darkling tempefts and portended fate,
While weak Fernando lived, appallid the state ;
Such when he dy'd, the peaceful morning rose,
The dawn of joy, and footh'd the public woes.
