So the fad nightingale, when childless made
By some rough swain who stole her young away,
Bewails her loss beneath a poplar shade,
Mourns all the night, in murmurs wastes the day;
Her melting songs a doleful pleasure yield,
And melancholy music fills the field.

Marriage nor love could ever move his mind,
But all alone, beat by the northern wind,
Shiv'ring on Tanais' banks the bard remain’d,
And of the god's unfruitful gift complain'd.
Circonian dames, enrag'd to be despis'd, 70
As they the feast of Bacchus folemniz'd,
Slew the poor youth, and strew'd about his limbs;
His head, torn off from the fair body, swims
Down that swift current where the Heber flows,
And still its tongue in doleful accents goes; 75
“ Ah! poor Eurydice!” he dying cry'd;
Eurydice resounds from ev'ry side.
