Alas from the day that we met
Language: English 
Alas from the Day when we met,
What Hope of an end to my Woes,
When I cannot endure to forget
The Glance that undid my Repose?

Yet Time  may diminish the Pain:
The Flow'r, the Shrub and the Tree
Which I rear'd for her Pleasure in vain,
In Time may have Comfort for me.
