Samuel Johnson (Сэмюэл Джонсон)


On Seeing a Bust of Mrs. Montague


Had this fair figure, which this frame displays,
Adorn'd in Roman time the brightest days,
In every dome, in every sacred place,
Her statue would have breathed an added grace,
And on its basis would have been enroll'd,
'This is Minerva, cast in Virtue's mould.'
