wear, That you will never let my rival, air, Profane my bed, or find reception there. This I conjure you by your nuptial vow; The faith you gave me then renew me now. By all your love, if any love remain, And by that love, which dying I retain; Assure me but of this before I go, And I shall bless thee for the fatal blow.' " To her sad speech abruptly I replied, In haste to shew her error ere she died. Quickly I ran the tragic story o'er, Which made herpleas'd amidst the pangs she bore. This done, she rolls in death her dizzy eyes, And with a sigh, which I receiv'd, she dies." Here did the youth his doleful tale conclude, A tale too doleful to be long pursu'd. But this ill chosen instance will not do, Unless my Delia could bejealous too. But she, whene'er I woo some other fair, Shows no resentment and betrays no care. She sees me court another, as unmov'd As she has always seen herself belov'd. That dreadful thought redoubles all my fear, That drowns my hopes and drives me to despair.
