Richard Jago.


462   Absence

WITH leaden foot Time creeps along
   While Delia is away:
With her, nor plaintive was the song,
   Nor tedious was the day.

Ah, envious Pow’r! reverse my doom;
   Now double thy career,
Strain ev’ry nerve, stretch ev’ry plume,
   And rest them when she’s here!

  By PanEris using Melati.
