BY A SMALL
PARTY OF ENGLISH,
WHO made this amufement a fubftitute
WHICH the disturbed fituation of the country
SWEET AUBURN! lovelieft village of the plain,
And parting fummer's ling'ring blooms delay'd.
Where humble happiness endear'd each scene!
The shelter'd cot, the cultivated farm,
The decent church, that top't the neighb'ring hill,
How often have I bleft the coming day,
Succeeding sports the mirthful band inspir'd,
The dancing pair that simply sought renown,
SWEET fmiling village, lovelieft of the lawn,
The hollow-founding bittern guards its neft;
