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
Youth's fairest blossoms spring from joy,
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,____________________
