First Line: With leaden foot time creeps along
Last Line: And rest them when she's here.
Subject(s): Absence; Love; Separation; Isolation


WITH leaden foot time creeps along,
While Delia is away:
With her, nor plaintive was the song,
Nor tedious was the day.
Ah! envious power, reverse my doom;
Now double thy career;
Strain every nerve, stretch every plume,
And rest them when she's here.
