6. She was too kind, wooed too persistently,Wrote moving letters to me day by day; The more she wrote, the more unmoved was I, The more she gave, the less could I repay.Therefore I grieve, not that I was not loved,But that, being loved, I could not love again. (6)

18. THE ring, so worn as you behold,So thin, so pale, is yet of gold: The passion such it was to prove-- Worn with life's care, love yet was love. (6)

My love, we will go, we will go, I and you,And away in the woods we will scatter the dew;And the salmon behold, and the ousel too,My love, we will hear, I and you, we will hear,The calling afar of the doe and the deer.And the bird in the branches will cry for us clear,And the cuckoo unseen in his festival mood;And death, oh my fair one, will never come near In the bosom afar of the fragrant wood. (5)
4. I said to Love,Thou art not young, thou art not fair, No faery darts, no cherub air, Nor swan, nor dove Are thine; but features pitiless, And iron daggers of distress I said to Love. (5)

13. CUPID, ere depriv'd of Sight, Young and apt for all Delight, Met with Folly on the way, As Idle and as fond of Play. Cupid's Wings now useless made, That a staff, his Feet must guide,Which wou'd still be apt to slide; This Decree at last was read, That Love by Folly shou'd be lead. (5)

They would fall as light As feathers, smelling sweet; and it would be Like sleeping and like waking, all at once! (5)
