Fly swifter than the wind,
Let your spells her fancy bind,
Through her senses reach her mind.
A garden belonging to the Encbamer.
ZAIDA. Intruder sleep! In vain you try
To hush my breast and close my eye;
The morning dews refresh the flower,
That unmolested blows;
But ineffectual falls the shower
Upon the cankered rose.
|KALIEL. Oh let not grief your bloom destroy,||60|
And beauty's cheek with tints supply,
Which nipt by sorrow fade and die.
Sigh not your hours away,
Youth should be ever gay;
Ever should dance around
Pleasure's enchanted ground:
Reason invites you,
Passion excites you,
Spring shall her sweets display,
Nature shall view with art;
No clouds shall shade the day,
No grief the heart.
Love shall his treasures bring,
Beauty shall sport and sing,
Free as the zephyr's wing,____________________
