Her brow shades frowns, although her eyes are sunny;
But ah, no more! this must not be foretold,
For women grieve to think they must be old.

Haunting untrodden paths to wail apart;
When men shall find thy flow'r, thy glory, pass,
And thou with careful brow, sitting alone,
When winter snows upon thy sable hairs,
And frost of age hath nipped thy beauties near;
Beauty, sweet Love, is like the morning dew,
Whose short refresh upon the tender green
Short is the glory of the blushing rose,
The hue which thou so carefully dost nourish,

Brother to Death, in silent darkness born,
