Elegiac Stanzas (when Wearied Wretches Sink To Sleep)

_Sic juvat perire_.

When wearied wretches sink to sleep,
How heavenly soft their slumbers lie!
How sweet is death to those who weep,
To those who weep and long to die!

Saw you the soft and grassy bed,
Where flowrets deck the green earth's breast?
'Tis there I wish to lay my head,
'Tis there I wish to sleep at rest.

Oh, let not tears embalm my tomb,--
None but the dews at twilight given!
Oh, let not sighs disturb the gloom,--
None but the whispering winds of heaven!

(The end)
Thomas Moore's poem: Elegiac Stanzas (When wearied wretches sink to sleep)

Love And Marriage
_Eque brevi verbo ferre perenne malum_. SECUNDUS, eleg. vii.Still the question I must parry, Still a wayward truant prove:Where I love, I must not marry; Where I marry, can not love.Were she fairest of creation, With the least presuming mind;Learned without affectation; Not deceitful, yet refined;Wise enough, but never rigid; Gay, but not too lightly free;Chaste as snow, and yet not frigid: Fond, yet satisfied with me:Were she all this ten times over, All that heaven to earth allows.I should be too much her lover Ever to become her spouse.Love

To Rosa (is The Song Of Rosa Mute?)
Is the song of Rosa mute?Once such lays inspired her lute!Never doth a sweeter songSteal the breezy lyre along,When the wind, in odors dying,Woos it with enamor'd sighing. Is my Rosa's lute unstrung?Once a tale of peace it sungTo her lover's throbbing breast--Then was he divinely blest!Ah! but Rosa loves no more,Therefore Rosa's song is o'er;And her lute neglected lies;And her boy forgotten sighs.Silent lute--forgotten lover--Rosa's love and song are over!(The end)Thomas Moore's poem: To Rosa (Is the song of Rosa mute?)
