Lines Written in Windsor Forest poem – Alexander Pope

A poem by Alexander Pope (1688-1744) , the greatest English poet of “Augustan” or Georgian period

All hail, once pleasing, once inspiring shade!

Scene of my youthful loves and happier hours!

Where the kind Muses met me as I stray’d,

And gently press’d my hand, and said “Be ours!-

Take all thou e’er shalt have, a constant Muse:

At Court thou may’st be liked, but nothing gain:

Stock thou may’st buy and sell, but always lose,

And love the brightest eyes, but love in vain.”
