Sonnet 10: To Honora Sneyd

HONORA, shou'd that cruel time arrive
When 'gainst my truth thou should'st my errors poize,
Scorning remembrance of our vanish'd joys;
When for the love-warm looks, in which I live,
But cold respect must greet me, that shall give
No tender glance, no kind regretful sighs;
When thou shalt pass me with averted eyes,
Feigning thou see'st me not, to sting, and grieve,
And sicken my sad heart, I cou'd not bear
Such dire eclipse of thy soul-cheering rays;
I cou'd not learn my struggling heart to tear
From thy lov'd form, that thro' my memory strays;
Nor in the pale horizon of Despair
Endure the wintry and the darken'd days.

April 1773.

Sonnet 9: Seek Not, My Lesbia, The Sequester'd Dale
Seek not, my Lesbia, the sequester'd dale, Or bear thou to its shades a tranquil heart; Since rankles most in solitude the smart Of injur'd charms and talents, when they fail To meet their due regard;--nor e'en prevail Where most they wish to please:--Yet, since thy part Is large in Life's chief blessings, why desert Sullen the world?--Alas! how many wail Dire loss of the best comforts Heaven can grant! While they the bitter tear in secret pour,
