I. LOVE : PERSONAL                           21
To Beauty what man but maun yield' him a prize, In her armour of glances, and blushes, and sighs? And when wit and refinement hae polish'd her darts, ) ,. They dazzle our een, as they Hie to our hearts.             \
But kindness, sweet kindness, in the fond sparkling e'e Has lustre outshining the diamond to me, And the heart-beating love as I'm clasp'd in her arms, ) ,. O, these are my lassie's all-conquering charms 1
"No. 22. Anna, thy charms my bosom fire.
Anna, thy charms my bosom fire,
And waste my soul with care ; But ah! how bootless to admire
When fated to despair! Yet in thy presence, lovely Fair,
To hope may be forgiven ; For sure 'twere impious to despair
So much in sight of Heaven.
