Excerpt from Specimens of the Later English Poets, Vol. 3 of 3: With Preliminary Notices
And yet I weep, a stranger to repose 0 what delusion did thy tongue employ That emma's fatal pledge of love, Her last bequest - with all a mother's care, The bitterness of sorrow should remove, Soften the horrors of despair, And chear a heart long lost to joy? How oft, when fondling in mine arms, Gazing enraptured on its angel-face, My soul the maze of Fate would vainly trace, And burn with all a father's fond alarms And 0 what ﬂattering scenes had Fancy feign'd, How did I rave of blessings yet in store Till every aching sense was sweetly pain'd, And my full heart could bear, nor tongue could utter more Just Heaven, I cry'd - with recent hopes elate.
