Treasure Island

Samuel Rogers

(30 July 1763 – 18 December 1855)

An Inscription for a Temple - Dedicated to the Graces (at Woburn-Abbey)


Approach with reverence. There are those within,
Whose dwelling-place is Heaven. Daughters of Jove,
From them flow all the decencies of Life;
Without them nothing pleases, Virtue's self
Admired not loved; and those on whom They smile,
Great though they be, and wise and beautiful,
Shine forth with double lustre.
