myrtle warbler quotes

Then Pope, as harmony itself exact,
In verse well disciplined, complete, compact,
I will bring you the lily that laughs,
I will twine
Lord's lost Him His mockingbird,
His fancy warbler;
Boy, I hate their empty shows,
Persian garlands I detest,
But he her fears to cease
Sent down the meek-eyed Peace;
A happy rural seat of various view:
Groves whose rich trees wept odorous gums and balm;
Them she upstays
Gently with myrtle band, mindless the while
So pass my Days. But when Nocturnal Shades
This World invelop, and th' inclement Air
But Thou that know'st Love above Intrest or lust
Strew the Myrtle and Rose on this once belov'd Dust
O feel as I feel,
brush your lips along
my eyelids,
open wide
beneath your frigid kisses.
