To --------- (in Vain, Sweet Maid! For Me You Bring)

In vain, sweet Maid! for me you bring
The first-blown blossoms of the spring;
My tearful cheek you wipe in vain,
And bid its pale rose bloom again.

In vain! unconscious, did I say?
Oh! you alone these tears can stay:
Alone, the pale rose can renew,
Whose sunshine is a smile for you.

Yet not in friendship's smile it lives;
Too cold the gifts that friendship gives:
The beam that warms a winter's day,
Plays coldly in the lap of may.

You bid my sad heart cease to swell;
But will you, if its tale I tell,
Nor turn away, nor frown the while,
But smile, as you were wont to smile?

Then bring me not the blossoms young,
That erst on Flora's forehead hung;
But round thy radiant temples twine,
The flowers whose flaunting mocks at mine.

Give me--nor pinks, nor pansies gay,
Nor violets, fading fast away,
Nor myrtle, rue, nor rosemary,
But give, oh give, thyself to me!

(The end)
Thomas Gent's poem: To --------- (in Vain, Sweet Maid! For Me You Bring)

To Melancholy
To thy unhappy courts a lonely guest I come, corroding Melancholy ,Sequester'd from the world, this woe-worn breast May yet indulge a solitary tear!For what should cheer the wretch's struggling heart; What lead him thro' misfortunes gloomy shades;When retrospection wings her keenest dart, And hope's dim land in misery's ocean fades?Adieu, for ever! visionary joys, Delusive shadows of a short-liv'd hour;The rod of woe invincible, destroys The light, the fairy fabric of your pow'r!How short of bliss the sublunary reign,How long the clouded days of misery and pain!(The end)Thomas Gent's poem: To Melancholy
