LIGHT a Foe to Love.
Intruder to my joys,
As thy approach destroys.
Just now Amanda, full of charms,
But at thy blushes conscious grown,
Emptiness of Love.
Of all our human joys;
If once poffeft, it cloys.
The Reasonable Exchange.
T'attract so many hearts,
Of all her other parts ?
Then pr’ythee, Damon, once be kind,
And some good nature shew ; Tell Cælia, tell her, as my friend, 'Tis meerly just she shou'd resign Whatever heart she has of mine,
Or give me one in lieu.
Advice to Toung Ladies.
Use your time, left age resuming
To your unbelieving friends.
Collinda seeks a cool retreat,
Her comely locks all careless flew,
Had Paris, when he judg'd the prize,
Joys of Conftancy.
Command such pow'rful darts,
To wound a thousand hearts.
But cou'd you guess the vast delight,
To constant lovers known,
And rule my heart alone.
The Amorous Swain made Happy.
And thus his suit did move,
Or take away my love.
The goddess thunder'd from the skies,
And granted his request :
And drove her from his breast.
Still their freedom wou'd betray;
When our reason bears the sway!
Swains themselves, while they pursue us,
Often teach us to deny ;
If we grow too fond, they fly.
The Wishing Lover.
OVELY charmer, dearest creature, L
Kind invader of my heart, Gract with every gift of nature,
Grac'd with every help of art.
Oh! cou'd I but make thee love me,
As thy charms my heart have mov'd, None cou'd e'er be blest above me,
None cou'd e'er be more beloy’d.
