Poems

The Two-Fold Suprise

SHE snapt her fingers, on her heel,
Her sweet boot-heel, she turned and left me;
What did I feel?'What could I feel,
At what of paradise had reft me?

I swooning lay; my soul away
To hell had fled, by madness driven'
Where'where!'she met again the pet,
Who'd come to coax her back to'heaven!
