To Emulate So Sweet a Bard

This book is sure exactly wrote
In Hesiod's manner, style, and thought,
Of Grecian poet's not the least.
And here his pow'rs are all exprest.
I fear, my friend, you say too much,
His verse is soft, his genius such,
That Soli's son will find it hard
To emulate so sweet a bard.
Farewell Aratus' empty themes,
His idle thoughts, and heavy dreams.
