I take no pleasure in the sun's bright beams, Z388
I take no pleasure in the sun’s bright beams, Nor in the crystal river’s purling streams, But in a dark and silent shady grove, I sigh out woes of my neglected love. Come, cruel fair, and charm me, ere I go To Death’s embraces in the shades below. For though condemn’d and fetter’d here I lie, Till I your sentence have, I cannot die. One look from those dear eyes, and then adieu, To all your cruelties and beauties too.
