“ing over-neat becomes à Slattern,
' most certainly in Love.
I shall make use of this Gentleman's Skill as I see Occasion, and since I am got upon the Subject of Love, shall conclude this paper with a Copy of Verses which were lately sent me by an unknown Hand, as I look upon them to be above the ordinary Run of Sonneteers.
THE Author tells me they were written in one of his despairing Fits; and I find entertains fome Hope that his Mistress may pity such a Passion as he has described, before she knows that she is herself Corinna.
Conceal, fond Man, conceal the mighty Smart,.
Nor tell Corinna fhe has fir'd thy Heart.
In vain would'st thou complain, in vain pretend
To ask a Pity which the must not lend,
She's too much thy Superior to comply,
And too too fair to let thy Passion dye.
Languis in Secret, and with dumb Surprize
Drink the resistless
: Glances of her Eyes.
At awful Distance entertain thy Grief,
Be still in Pain, but never ask Relief.
Ne'er tempt her Scorn of thy consuming State;
Be any way undone, but fly her Hate.
Thou must submit to see thyi Charmer bless Some happier Touth that fall admire her lefs; Who in that lovely Form, that Heavinly Mind, Shall miss ten thousand Beauties thou couldyt
Who with low Fancy fhall approach ber Charms,
Wbile half enjoy'd be finks into his Arms.
She knows not, must not know, thy nobler Fire,
Whom she, and whom the Muses do inspire;
Her Image only Mall dky Breast employ,
And fill thy captiv'd Soul with Shades of Foy;
Direet thy Dreams by Night, thy Thoughts by
And never, never, from thy Bofom stray.
