ALEXANDER'S FEAST:

OR, THE POWER OF MUSIC.

An Ode in Honour of St. Cecilia's Day.

'Twas at the royal feast for Persia won
By Philip's warlike son:
Aloft in awful state

The godlike hero sate

On his imperial throne :

His valiant peers were plac'd around;

Their brows with roses and with myrtles bound:

(So should desert in arms be crown'd)

The lovely Thais, by his side,

Sate, like a blooming eastern bride,

In flower of youth and beauty's pride.
Happy, happy, happy pair!
None but the brave,

None but the brave,

None but the brave deserves the fair.
