First Line: What though I have transgrest against thy will?
Last Line: Of constant love, we other blessings miss.
Alternate Author Name(s): William Boxworth
Subject(s): Unfaithfulness; Infidelity; Adultery; Inconstancy


What though I have transgrest against thy will?
And run as idle ways as many other?
I am not minded to pursue them still,
If thou no more wilt thy affections smother;
And know, Azile, that the chiefest cause
Of all mishaps, sprung first from thy unkindness,
It is a statute made in Cupid's laws,
Neglected lovers spend their days in blindness:
And so it is, when once depriv'd the bliss
Of constant love, we other blessings miss.
