Sudden, plump, he sinks beneath them
TO MY DEAR MARY ANNE.
From her I must quickly depart:
Still her image shall dwell in my heart.
Is unlike what in lovers' hearts glows; The love which for Mary I feel
Is far purer than Cupid bestows. I wish not your peace to disturb,
I wish not your joys to molest; Mistake not my passion for love,
'T is your friendship alone I request. Not ten thousand lovers could feel
The friendship my bosom contains; It will ever within my heart dwell,
While the warm blood flows through my veins. May the Ruler of Heaven look down,
And my Mary from evil defend !
May her happiness ne'er have an end!
Farewell! I with anguish repeat; For ever I'll think upon you,
While this heart in my bosom shall beat.
ON THE LETTER I.
(Written in a Lady's Scrap-Book.)
But in infancy ever am known;
I always am greatest alone.
You may search all the sky-I'm not there:
I am midway suspended in air.
Wealth ne'er did my presence desire;
Though I serve as a part of the fire.
In my absence no kingdom can be;
Without interfering with me.
Not one is more slender and tall;
I boldly appear 'mong them all.
I am never in sorrow or gloom; Though in wit and in wisdom I equally reign, I'm the heart of all sin, and have long lived in vain,
Yet I ne'er shall be found in the tomb.
Thy loss with scarce a sigh;
Too loved of all to die.
The tears refuse to start;
Falls dreary on my heart.
They sink, and turn to care;
Yet, dropping, harden there.
Than feelings sunk remain,
But never melt again.
