Their graceful screen let kindred plantanes join, And with their broad vans shiver in the breeze ; So flames design'd, or by imprudence caught, Shall spread no ruin to the neighbouring roof. Yet nor the sounding margin of the main, Nor gently sloping side of breezy hill, Nor streets, at distance due, imbower'd in trees, Will half the health, or half the pleasure yield, Unless some pitying Naiad deign to lave, With an unceasing stream, thy thirsty bounds.
