From your bright sparkling Eyes, I was undone;

Rays, you have more transparent than the sun,

A midst its glory in the rising Day,

None can you equal in your bright array;

Constant in your calm and unspotted Mind;

Equal to all, but will to none Prove kind,

So knowing, seldom one so Young,you’l Find

Ah! woe’s me, that I should Love and conceal,

Long have I wish’d, but never dare reveal,

Even though severly Loves Pains I feel;

Xerxes that great, was’t free from Cupids Dart,

And all the greatest Heroes, felt the smart.
