RICHARD JAGO

1715-1781

462                                                  Absence

WITH leaden foot Time creeps along
   While Delia is away:
With her, nor plaintive was the song,
   Nor tedious was the day.

Ah, envious Powr! reverse my doom;
   Now double thy career,
Strain evry nerve, stretch evry plume,
   And rest them when shes here!
