Fidele's Tomb.To fair Fidele's grassy Tomb Soft Madis & Village hinds shall bring Each opening sweet of earliest bloom And rifle all the breathing spring No waiting Ghost shall dare appear To vex with shrieks this quiet Grove But Shepherd lads assemble here And melting Virgins own their love. Vid: Collin's Poems.
