Here he observes the Subterranean Cells,

He views with Horror next the noisy Cave, Where with hoarse Dinn imprison'd Tempests rave: Where clam'rous Hurricanes attempt their Flight, 105 Or, whirling in tumultuous Eddies, fight. The warring Winds unmov'd Hygeia heard, Brav'd their loud Jars, but much for Celsus fear'd. Andromeda, so whilst her Heroe fought, Shook for his Danger, but her own forgot.
110 And now the Goddess with her Charge descends, Where scarce one chearful Glimpse their Steps befriends. Here his forsaken Seat old Chaos keeps; And undisturb’d by Form, in Silence sleeps. A grisly Wight, and hideous to the Eye;
115 An aukward Lump of shapeless Anarchy. With sordid Age his Features are defac'd; His Lands unpeopled, and his Countries waste. To these dark Realms much learned Lumber creeps, There copious M-safe in Silence sleeps.
120 Where Mushroom Libels in Oblivion lye, And, soon as born, like other Monsters die. Upon a Couch of Jett in these Abodes, Dull Night, his melancholy Consort, nods.

Pale Grief sate heavy on his mournful Look:
Tell me, thou much afflicted Shade, why Sighs
185 A sullen Satisfaction at your Woe?
Since, said the Ghost, with Pity you'll attend, Know, I'm Guiäcum, once your firmest Friend, And on this barren Beach in Discontent Am doom'd to stay, 'till th' angry Pow'rs relent. 190 Those Spectres seam'd with Scars that threaten there, The Victims of my late ill Conduct are. They vex with endless Clamours my Repose: This wants his Palate; That demands his Nose : And here they execute stern Pluto's Will,
195 To ply me ev'ry moment with a Pill.
Then Celsus thus: O much lamented State! How rigid is the Sentence you relate ? Methinks I recollect your former Air, But ah, how much you 're chang'd from what you were ! 200 Insipid as your late Ptisans you lye, That once were sprightlier far than Mercury. At the sad Tale you tell, the Poppies weep, And mourn their vegetable Souls asleep. The unctuous Larix, and the healing Pine
205 Lament your Fate in Tears of Turpentine. But still the Off-spring of your Brain shall prove The Grocers Care, and brave the Rage of Jove: When Bonfires blaze, your Vagrant Works shall rise
