And that 's a pleasant country, without doubt,
I Little thought, thou fond ingrateful fin !
When first I let thee in,
That thou would'st e'er have grown
Letting thee suck thy fill;
What ill returns doft thou allow !-

bosom did I take
Not fearing from it any harm;
And the whole field 'twill overgrow ;
Nay, unless something foon I do, 'Twill kill, I fear, my very laurel too.
But now all 's gone-I now, alas ! complain,
Declare, proteft, and threat, in vain;
And is so settled in the throne,
Know 'tis sordid, and 'tis low
(All this as well as you I know)
But, whilst this cursed flesh I bear,
In vain, exceedingly in vain,
For, if the chiefest Christian Head

S water fluid is, till it do grow
Solid and fixt by cold;
Frost only can it hold:
Yet, when kind beams appear,
And loses itself there.
But my substantial love
No weathers can it move :

THEN like some wealthy island thou shalt lie,
And like the sea about it, I;
Like the kind Ocean I will be,
But But I 'll embrace thee gentlier far than fo ;
As their fresh banks soft rivers do : Nor Mall the proudest planet boast a power Of making my full love to ebb one hour;
It never dry or low can prove, Whilst thy unwasted fountain feeds
Such heat and vigour shall our kisses bear,
As if like doves we 'engender'd there :
Nought shall my hands or lips control ;
Night, that 's both blind and filent too!
Creeping so far beneath the sea,
The pleasant thefts of love do hide :
may secure thee ; but thou 'aft yet from me A more infallible fecurity;
For there 's no danger I should tell The joys which are to me unspeakable.

Thou, who man's soul doft overshade
With a thick cloud by vapours made-
Or passage of his fpirits to choke,
The fate of Egypt I sustain,
And never feel the dew of rain,
But all my too much moisture owe
Come, thou just God! and equal me
Awhile to my disdainful She :
Till Love does me the favour fhew :
Let her but grant, and then will I
Thee and thy kinsman Death defy;
Never will an agreement be ;
