Be gentle, and in pity choose To wish the wildest tempests loose: That, thrown again upon the coast, Where first my...
الصفحة 132 - Twas with pain that she saw me depart: She gaz'd, as I slowly withdrew ; My path I could hardly discern ; So sweetly she bade me adieu, I thought that she bade me return.

الصفحة 113 - Must Lady Jenny frisk about, And visit with her cousins ? At balls must she make all the rout, And bring home hearts by dozens ? What has she better, pray, than I ? What hidden charms to boast, That all mankind for her should die, Whilst I am scarce a toast ? Dearest mamma, for once let me Unchain'd my fortune try : I'll have my earl as well as she, Or know the reason why.
الصفحة 122 - The shepherd swains shall dance and sing For thy delight each May morning: If these delights thy mind may move, Then live with me and be my love.
الصفحة 146 - By mode and caprice are the city dames led, But we, as the children of nature are bred; By her hand alone we are painted and dress' d; For the roses will bloom when there's peace in the breast.
الصفحة 146 - When love has possessed us, that love we reveal; Like the flocks that we feed are the passions we feel; So, harmless and simple, we sport and we play, And leave to fine folks to deceive and betray. Perdita's song reveals all the typical illogic of the pastoral form. The city is associated with "passions by luxury taught," with hypocrisy, "mode and caprice,
