PAST ruin'd Ilion Helen lives, 
  Alcestis rises from the shades; 
Verse calls them forth; 'tis verse that gives 
  Immortal youth to mortal maids. 
 
Soon shall Oblivion's deepening veil         5
  Hide all the peopled hills you see, 
The gay, the proud, while lovers hail 
  These many summers you and me.
