Russia.____________Yet there life glows;/ Yet cherish'd there, beneath the shining waste, / The furry nations harbour: tipt with jet, / Fair ermines, spotless as the snows they press; / Sables, of glossy: black; and dark embrown'd, / Or beauteous freakt with many a mingled hue, / Thousands besides, the costly pride of courts. Vide Thomsons Winter.
