TO CYNTHIA GONE INTO THE COUNTRY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Tho' the late parting was our joint desire
Last Line: Not once to sigh for what thou left'st behind.
Subject(s): Farewell; Parting


THO' the late parting was our joint desire,
It did with diff'rent passions us inspire;
Thou wert o'erjoy'd, opprest with sorrow I;
Thy thoughts did faster than thy footsteps fly.

But tho' I strove and labour'd to depart,
Spite of my feet, I follow'd with my heart;
Since thus I griev'd my loss, it was unkind
Not once to sigh for what thou left'st behind.
