Y

VII.
Let his crook be with hyacinths bound,

So Phyllis the trophy despise ;
Let his forehead with laurels be crown'd,

So they thine not in Phyllis's eyes.
The language that flows from the heart
Is a stranger to Paridel's tongue;
Yet
may

she beware of his art,
Or sure I must envy the song.
IV. DISAPPOINTMENT.

1.
E shepherds give ear to my lay,

And take no more heed of my sheep:
They have nothing to do, but to stray ;

I have nothing to do, but to weep. Yet do not my folly reprove ;

She was fair-and my paflion begun;
She smil'd- -and I could not but loves
She is faithless and I am undone.

II.
Perhaps I was void of all thought ;

Perhaps it was plain to forsee,
That a nymph fo compleat would be fought

By a fwain more engaging than me.
Ah ! love ev'ry hope can inspire:

It banishes wisdom the while;
And the lip of the nymph we admire
Seems for ever adorn'd with a smile.

III.
She is faithless, and I am undone ;

Ye that witness the woes I endure,
Let reason instruct you to shun

What it cannot instruct you to cure.
Beware how ye loiter in vain

Amid nymphs of an higher degree:
It is not for me to explain
How fair, and how fickle they be.

IV.
Alas! from the day that we met,

What hope of an end to my woes ?
When I cannot endure to forget

The glance that undid my repose. Yet time may diminish the pain :

The flow'r, and the shrub, and the tree,
Which I rear'd for her pleasure in vain,
In cime may have comfort for me.

V.
The sweets of a dew-sprinkled rose,

The sound of a murmuring stream,
The peace which from folitude flows,

Henceforth fall be Corydon's theme. High transports are shewn to the fight,

But we are not to find them our own; Fate never beftow'd such delight,

As I with my Phyllis had known.

VI.
Oye woods, spread your branches apace;

To your deepest recesses I Ay;
I would hide with the beasts of the chace;

I would vanish from every eye.
Yet
my

reed shall resound thro' the grove
With the same fad complaint it begun;
How she smil'd, and I could not but love ;

Was faithless, and I am undone !
