Song CVI., p.352.

[Tea-Table Miscellany Contents]

WHile silently I lov’d, nor dar’d, 

To tell my crime aloud, 

The influence of your smiles I shar’d, 

In common with the crowd. 

– 

But when I once my flame exprest, 

In hopes to ease my pain, 

You singl’d me out from all the rest, 

The mark of your disdain. 

– 

If thus, Corinna, you shall frown 

On all that do adore, 

Then all mankind must be undone, 

Or you must smile no more.
