new metamorphosis
Note by A Milnes to Pope's Works a chapter of The Life Of Pope

'She said, and melting as in tears she lay,
In a soft, silver stream dissolv'd away.
The silver stream her virgin coldness keeps,
For ever murmurs and for ever weeps;
Still bears the name the hapless virgin bore,
And bathes the forest where she ranged before.'Windsor Forest, 203.
