Delia

By: Samuel Daniel

Poetry

Excerpt: If Beauty thus be clouded with a frown, // That pity shines no comfort to my bliss, // And vapors of disdain so overfrown, // That my life's light thus wholy darken'd is, // Why should I more molest the world with cries, // The air with sighs, the earth below with tears? // Since I live hateful to those ruthless eyes, // Vexing with untun'd moan her dainty ears; // If I have lov'd her dearer than my breath, // My breath that calls the heav'ns to witness it, // A...

Delia

By: Samuel Daniel

Poetry

Excerpt: Unto the boundless Ocean of thy beauty // Runs this poor river, charg'd with streams of zeal: // Returning thee the tribute of my duty, // Which here my love, my youth, my plaints reveal. // Here I unclasp the book of my charg'd soul, // Where I have cast th'accounts of all my care: // Here have I summ'd my sighs, here I enroll // How they were spent for thee; look what they are. // Look on the dear expences of my youth, // And see how just I reckon with thine e...

Love Is a Sickness

By: Samuel Daniel

Poetry

Excerpt: LOVE is a sickness full of woes, // All remedies refusing; // A plant that with most cutting grows, // Most barren with best using. // Why so? // More we enjoy it, more it dies; // If not enjoyed, sighing cries // Heigh Ho! // Love is a torment of the mind, // A tempest everlasting; // And Jove hath made it of a kind // Not well, nor full, nor fasting. // Why so? // More we enjoy it, more it dies; // If not enjoyed, sighing cries // Heigh Ho! // Samuel Daniel //...

The Sheep and the Bramble-Bush

By: John Cunningham

Poetry

Excerpt: A THICK-TWISTED brake, in the time of a storm, // Seem'd kindly to cover a sheep: // So snug, for a while, he lay shelter'd and warm, // It quietly sooth'd him asleep. // The clouds are now scatter'd-the winds are at peace, // The sheep to his pasture inclin'd; // But ah! the fell thicket lays hold of his fleece, // His coat is left forfeit behind. // My friend, who the thicket of law never try'd, // Consider before you get in; // Tho' judgment and sentence are ...
