NO SORROW PECULIAR TO THE SUFFERER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The lover, in melodious verses
Last Line: Nor thou alone hast lost thy wits.
Subject(s): Grief; Sorrow; Sadness


THE lover, in melodious verses,
His singular distress rehearses,
Still closing with a rueful cry,
"Was ever such a wretch as I?"
Yes! thousands have endured before
All thy distress; some, haply more.
Unnumbered Corydons complain,
And Strephons, of the like disdain:
And if thy Chloe be of steel,
Too deaf to hear, too hard to feel;
Not her alone that censure fits,
Nor thou alone hast lost thy wits.
