ROSETTE, by            
First Line: Still upon her glances waiting
Last Line: And in conquest passion dies.'

STILL upon her glances waiting,
Still desiring, supplicating,
Vainly to Rosette I plead --
'Must I in eternal trial
Know the fury of denial?
Pity my so constant need!'

Still austerely, still unbending,
Nothing my occasion mending,
Cold and fair Rosette replies --
'I would clasp in sweet submission,
But that hope is love's condition,
And in conquest passion dies.'
