Miss L--st--r, No. 6, _Union-Street, 

Oxford-Road_. 

 

Oh, pleasing talk, to paint the ripen'd charms 

Of youth untutor'd in the female arts; 

To see instinctively desire blaze out, 

And warm the mind with all its burning joys. 

The _tell-tale eyes_ in liquid pools sustain'd, 

The throbbing breast now rising, now suppress't; 

The _thrilling bliss_ quick darting thro' the frame, 

The _short fetch'd sighs_, the snow white twining 

limbs, 

The sudden gush, and the extatic oh. 

 

SUCH our all pleasing L--st--r 

leads the train, and, smiling like 

the morn, unfolds her heaven of beauties. 

Oh, for a _Guido's touch_, or _Thomson's 

thought_, 

 

( 16 ) 

 

thought_, to paint the richness of her 

unequall'd charms; every perfection 

that can possibly adorn the face and 

mind of Woman seem centered in this be- 

witching girl; hither resort then, ye 

genuine lovers of beauty and good 

sense; here, whilst _Plutus_ reigns, may 

you revel nor know satiety; here feast 

the longing appetite, and return with 

fresh _vigor_ to every _attack_. Now arrived 

at the tempting age of nineteen, her ima- 

gination is filled with every luscious 

idea, _refined_ sensibiiity, and _fierce desire_ 

can unite, her form is majestic, tall, and 

elegant; her make truly genteel, her 

complexion 

 

-----As April's lily fair, 

And blooming as June's brightest rose. 

 

Painted by the masterly hand of nature, 

shaded by tresses of the darkest brown, 

and enlivened by two stars that swim in 

all the essence of unsatiated love. 

 

Her pouting lips distil nectarious balm, 

And thro' the frame its thrilling transports 

dart; 

 

which, when parted, display a casket 

of snow white pearls, ranged in the nicest 

regularity, the _neighbouring hills_ below 

full 

 

( 71 ) 

 

full ripe for manual pressure, firm, and 

elastic, and heave at every touch. The 

_Elysian font_, in the centre of a _black be- 

witching grove_, supported by two pyra- 

mids white as alabaster, very delicate, 

and soft as turtle's down. At the _approach_ 

of their _favourite lord_ unfold, and for 

three guineas he is conducted to this 

_harbour_ of never failing delight. Add 

to all this, she sings well, is a very 

chearful companion, and has only been, 

in _life_ nine months.

Miss H--ll--nd, No. 2, _York-Street, 

Queen-Ann-Street_. 

 

No time shall pass without that dear delight, 

I'll talk of love all day, and aca it all the night; 

Pleasure and I as to one goal design'd, 

Will run with equal pace, while sorrow lays
