AFTER the pangs of a desperate Lover,
When day and night I have sigh'd all in vain,
Ah what a Pleasure it is to discover
In her eyes pity, who causes my pain!

When with unkindness our Love at a stand is,
And both have punish'd our selves with the pain,
Ah what a pleasure the touch of her hand is,
Ah what a pleasure to press it again!

When the denial comes fainter and fainter,
And her Eyes give what her tongue does deny,
Ah what a trembling I feel when I venture,
Ah what a Trembling does usher my joy!

When, with a Sigh, she accords me the blessing,
And her Eyes twinkle 'twixt pleasure and pain;
Ah what a joy 'tis, beyond all Expressing,
Ah what a joy to hear, shall we again!
