Your tears for my absence soon leaving to flow, Some other will court you, and you will bestow On a wealthier suitor your hand.
Página 120 - Instead of these, a formal band, In furs and coifs, around me stand, With sounds uncouth, and accents dry, That grate the soul of harmony. Each pedant sage unlocks his store Of mystic, dark, discordant lore; And points, with tottering hand, the ways That lead me to the thorny maze.
Página 119 - How blest my days, my thoughts how free, In sweet society with thee ! Then all was joyous, all was young, And years unheeded roll'd along : But now the pleasing dream is o'er, These scenes must charm me now no more.
