The Reply, p.40.

[Tea-Table Miscellany Contents]

IN vain, fond youth; thy tears give o’er; 

What more alass can Flavia do? 

Thy truth I own, thy fate deplore: 

All are not happy that are true. 

– 

Suppress those sighs, and weep no more; 

Should heaven and earth with thee combine, 

‘Twere all in vain, since any power, 

To crown thy love must alter mine. 

– 

But if revenge can ease thy pain, 

I’ll sooth the ills I cannot cure, 

Tell that I drag a hopeless chain, 

And all that I inflict endure.
