It is a lovely hour, — though heaven Had ne'er to man his partner given, That thing of beauty, fatal, fair, Bright, fickle— child of flame and air...
Pàgina 56 - Forbear, my lord, to grieve, And know your Rosamond does live. If 'tis joy to wound a lover, How much more to give him ease ? When his passion we discover, Oh how pleasing 'tis to please ! The bliss returns, and we receive Transports greater than we give, KING.
