Her Trumpet Slander rais’d on high.

And told the Tidings to the Sky;

Contempt discharg’d a living Dart,

A side-long Viper, to her Heart;

Reproach breath’d Poisons o’er her Face,

And soil’d and blasted ev’ry Grace;

Officious Shame, her Handmaid new,

Still turn’d the Mirror to her View;

While those, in Crimes the deepest dy’d,

Approach’d to whiten at her Side.

Moore’s Female Seducers.
