Ah! cruel nymph
Language: English 
Ah! cruel nymph! you give despair,
When with delight I should approach thee,
Still with Sylvia you reproach me,
Still with that deluding fair.

Too long I own, she has maintain'd
Her conquest when her love was feign'd.
But charming, airy, humorous and gay,
You from my eyes have driven the mist away.
