Which from my bosom seeks to flow,And each propitious passing hourThat suffers me in all its power
Far nimbler needs must be, in truth.
1767-9.-----EXPLANATION OF AN ANTIQUE GEM,
For he whom erst I loved,
So like that holy band is he.See how he bursts each bond material,
To cover with whiteYour pretty dark dress.Equal with equal! then all is right!That's the motto in which I delight.I am in love with the miller-boy;He wears nothing that I could destroy.
WHO will hear me? Whom shall I lament to?Who would pity me that heard my sorrows?Ah, the lip that erst so many rapturesUsed to taste, and used to give responsive,Now is cloven, and it pains me sorely;And it is not thus severely woundedBy my mistress having caught me fiercely,And then gently bitten me, intendingTo secure her friend more firmly to her:No, my tender lip is crack'd thus, onlyBy the winds, o'er rime and frost proceeding,Pointed, sharp, unloving, having met me.Now the noble grape's bright juice commingledWith the bee's sweet juice, upon the fireOf my hearth, shall ease me of my torment.Ah, what use will all this be, if with itLove adds not a drop of his own balsam?
Through and through with flames are glowing!Dragon-women, men-wolf swarms,
Gently, as loved one's names, those words to speak
1798.(* Aganippe--A spring in Boeotia, which arose out of MountHelicon, and was sacred to Apollo and the Muses.)-----LILY'S MENAGERIE.
What tells me to roam?What drags me and lures me
Wand'ring to love is a heavenly dance.Cupid, the near one, o'erhears their deriding,
And gladness.Go, tell her straight, and often too,The boy's mute hopes and wishes true.
