Words   1 My fond shepherds of late were so blest, The nymphs were so happy and gay, That each night they went early to rest, And they merrily sung through the day, But Oh what a scene must appear, Must the sweet rural pastimes be o'er, Must the taber the taber no more strike the ear, Must the dance on the green be no more., 2 Must the flocks from their pastures be led, And the herds go wild straying abroad, Must the looms be all stopt in each shed, And the ships be all moored in each road, Must the Arts be all scattered around, And must commerce grow sick of her tide, Must religion expire on the ground, And shall virtue sink down by her side.
