Sweet Auburn! loveliest village of the plain.
GOLDSMITH: _Des. Village._
Suburban villas, highway-side retreats,
That dread th' encroachment of our growing streets,
Tight boxes neatly sash'd, and in a blaze
With all a July sun's collected rays,
Delight the citizen, who gasping there,
Breathes clouds of dust, and calls it country air.
COWPER: _Retirement,_ Line 481.
