TO MISS F. B. ON ASKING FOR MRS. BARBAULD'S LOVE AND TIME, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Of love and time say what would fanny know
Last Line: With gay sixteen they both are in their prime.
Alternate Author Name(s): Aikin, Anna Letitia
Subject(s): Time; Love - Erotic


Of Love and Time say what would Fanny know?
That Time is precious, and that Love is sweet?
That both, the choicest blessings lent below,
With gay Sixteen in envied union meet?

Time without Love is tasteless, dull, and cold,
Love out of Time will fond and doting prove;
To bright sixteen are all their treasures told,
Love suits the Time, and Time then favours Love.

No longer then of matron brows inquire
For sprightly Love, or swiftly-wasting Time;
Look but at home, you have what you require, --
With gay sixteen they both are in their prime.
