TO CHLOE.

WISHES TO HIS SUPPOSED MISTRESS. AN APOLOGY FOR GOING INTO THE COUNTRY.

WHOE'ER she be, CHLOE, we must not always be in heaven,

That not impossible she, Forever toying, ogling, kissing, billing ;

That shall command my heart and me; The joys for which I thousands would have given, ! Will presently be scarcely worth a shilling. Where'er she lie,

Locked up from mortal eye, Thy.neck is fairer than the Alpine snows,

In shady leaves of destiny, And, sweetly swelling, beats the down of doves;

Till that ripe birth Thy cheek of health, a rival to the rose;

Of studied fate stand forth,
Thy pouting lips, the throne of all the loves ;

And teach her fair steps to our earth;
Yet, though thus beautiful beyond expression,
That beauty fadeth by too much possession.

Till that divine

Idea take a shrine Economy in love is peace to nature,

Of crystal flesh, through which to shine : Much like economy in worldly matter; We should be prudent, never live too fast;

Meet you her, my Wishes, Profusion will not, cannot always last.

Bespeak her to my blisses,

And be ye called my absent kisses.
Lovers are really spendthrifts, - 't is a shame, -
Nothing their thoughtless, wild career can tame, I wish her beauty,
Till penury stares them in the face ;

That owes not all its duty
And when they find an empty purse,

To gaudy tire, or glistering shoe-tie,

[blocks in formation]

Think what with them they would do

COUNTY GUY.
That without them dare to woo :

FROM “QUENTIN DURWARD.”
And unless that mind I see,
What care I how great she be?

Ah ! County Guy, the hour is nigh,

The sun has left the lea, Great, or good, or kind, or fair,

The orange-flower perfumes the bower, I will ne'er the more despair :

The breeze is on the sea. If she love me, this believe,

The lark, his lay who trilled all day, I will die ere she shall grieve.

Sits hushed his partner nigh; If she slight me when I woo,

Breeze, bird, and flower confess the hour, I can scorn and let her go ;

But where is County Guy ? For if she be not for me,

The village maid steals through the shade, What care I for whom she be ?

Her shepherd's suit to hear ;
GEORGE WITHER.

To beauty shy, by lattice high,

Sings high-born cavalier.

The star of Love, all stars above, ROSALIND'S COMPLAINT.

Now reigns o'er earth and sky,

And high and low the influence know, Love in my bosom, like a bee,

But where is County Guy ? Doth suck his sweet ;

SIR WALTER SCOTT. Now with his wings he plays with me,

Now with his feet;
Within mine eyes he makes his nest,

LET NOT WOMAN E'ER COMPLAIN. His bed amidst my tender breast,

LET not woman e'er complain My kisses are his daily feast,

Of inconstancy in love ; And yet he robs me of my rest :

Let not woman e'er complain Ah ! wanton, will ye?

Fickle man is apt to rove;

Look abroad through Nature's range, And if I sleep, then percheth he

Nature's mighty law is change; With pretty flight,

Ladies, would it not be strange And makes his pillow of my knee,

Man should then a monster prove ? The livelong night. Strike I the lute, he tunes the string; Mark the winds, and mark the skies; He music plays, if so I sing ;

Ocean's ebb and ocean's flow; He lends me every lovely thing,

Sun and moon but set to rise, Yet, cruel, he my heart doth sting :

Round and round the seasons go. Whist! wanton, still ye !

Why then ask of silly man,

To oppose great Nature's plan? Else I with roses every day

We'll be constant while we can, Will whip you hence,

You can be no more, you know. And bind you when you long to play,

ROBERT BURNS.
For your offence ;
I 'll shut my eyes to keep you in,
I'll make you fast it for your sin,

UNSATISFACTORY.
I'll count your power not worth a pin : “ HAVE other lovers — say, my love -
Alas! what hereby shall I win

Loved thus before to-day ?”.
If he gainsay me!

“They may have, yes, they may, my love ;

Not long ago they may."
What if I beat the wanton boy
With many a rod ?

“But, though they worshipped thee, my love, He will repay me with annoy,

Thy maiden heart was free?" Because a god;

“Don't ask too much of me, my love; Then sit thou safely on my knee,

Don't ask too much of me."
And let thy bower my bosom be;
Lurk in my eyes, I like of thee,

“ Yet, now 't is you and I, my love, O Cupid ! so thou pity me;

Love's wings no more will fly ?” Spare not, but play thee !

“If love could never die, my love, THOMAS LODGE. 1 Our love should never die.”
