Lettered, lower left: "W.Hamilton Pinxt. | Come then, ye virgins and ye youths, whose hearts | Have felt the raptures of refining love; | And thou, Amanda, come, pride of my song; | Come with those downcast eyes, sedate and sweet, | Those looks demure, that deeply pierce the soul,"; lettered, lower right: "F.Bartolozzi, sculpt. | Where, with the light of thoughtful reason mixed, | Shine lively fancy and the feeling heart; | O come; and while the rosy-footed may | Starts blushing on, together let us tread | The morning dews, and gather in their prime | Fresh blooming flowers, | Vide Thompson's Spring."; Lettered, lower center: "MAY | London, Publish'd Aug 30th.1793, by Thos. Macklin, Poets Gallery, Fleet Street."
