Come, Magdalen, And Bind My Hair (vignette 7)

Come, Magdalen, and bind my hair,
And put me on my sad array;
I to my father's house repair,
And hear his final doom to-day.

But wrap me in that cypress veil;
At first his eye I would not brave,
'Till he shall bid the mourner hail,
And knows I come from Edwin's grave.

I, late his boast, his heir, his pride,
Must like a guilty vassal kneel;
I, who was gallant Edwin's bride,
Must to my widow'd state appeal!

Closely within my heart must keep
His praise for whom that heart is riv'n,
And let each fond resentment sleep,
For I must die or be forgiven.

The Lover's Apology (vignette 6)
I look'd into her eyes, And saw something divine,For there, like summer lightning, Swift coruscations shine.Still flashing, and still changing, Attemper'd soft and bright,Through each expression ranging, From pity to delight.From high or zealous feeling, From arch, excursive grace,From all with which a lovely mind Endows the human face.Perhaps a new and careless eye May not those beauties see,And wonder to behold the power Belinda has with me.The spell which holds this captive soul She never would possess,Were not her varying features rul'd By sparkling playfulness,But when with aimless, trackless skill
