SURPRISED by joyimpatient as the Wind
I turned to share the transportO! with whom
But Thee, deep buried in the silent tomb,
That spot which no vicissitude can find?
Love, faithful love, recalld thee to my mind
But how could I forget thee? Through what power,
Even for the least division of an hour,
Have I been so beguiled as to be blind
To my most grievous loss?That thoughts return
Was the worst pang that sorrow ever bore,
Save one, one only, when I stood forlorn,
Knowing my hearts best treasure was no more;
That neither present time, nor years unborn
Could to my sight that heavenly face restore.
