Lines illustrated:

The lute or mandoline, accompanied
By many a voice yet sweeter than their own,
Kindles, nor slowly; and the dance displays
The gentle arts and witcheries of love.
Its hopes and fears and feignings, till the youth
Drops on his knee as vanquished, and the maid.
Her tambourine uplifting with a grace
Nature's and Nature's only, bids him rise. [191]
