עמוד 28 - IN vain you tell your parting lover, You wish fair winds may waft him over. Alas! what winds can happy prove, That bear me far from what I love? Alas! what dangers on the main Can equal those that I sustain, From slighted vows, and cold disdain?
עמוד 199 - To Me pertains not, She replies, To know or care where CUPID flies ; What are his Haunts, or which his Way ; Where He would dwell, or whither stray : Yet will I never set Thee free : For Harm was meant, and Harm to Me.
עמוד 267 - And give each future morn a tincture of thy white. Yet tell thy votary, potent queen of love, Henry, my Henry, will he never rove ? Will he be ever kind, and...
עמוד 262 - I fear from my subjected mind, (If beauty's force to constant love can bind) That years may roll ere in her turn the maid Shall weep the fury of my love decay'd, And weeping follow me, as thou dost now, With idle clamours of a broken vow.
עמוד 131 - To give this thesis plainer proof, You have to-night beneath your roof A pair of gods (nay, never wonder) : This youth can fly, and I can thunder. I'm Jupiter, and he Mercurius, My page, my son indeed, but spurious.

עמוד 235 - The name th' indulgent father doubly lov'd ; For in the child the mother's charms improv'd. Yet as, when little, round his knees she...
עמוד 32 - If we see right, we see our woes: Then what avails it to have eyes? From ignorance our comfort flows. The only wretched are the wise.
עמוד 26 - Her own Adonis live in thee, Will lightly her first loss deplore ; Will easily forgive the boar : Her eyes with tears no more will flow ; With jealous rage her breast will glow : And on her tabby rival's face She deep will mark her new disgrace.
עמוד 285 - This fteel (fo Anna's high behefts ordain), The General faid, unlefs by glorious death Abfolv'd, till conqueft has confirm'd your reign. Returns like thefe our miftrefs bids us make, When from a foreign prince a gift her Britons take.
