First Line: O thou unknown disturber of my rest
Last Line: Pledge my devoted heart, and clasp that treasure mine.
Subject(s): Death; Dead, The


O thou unknown disturber of my rest,
Ceaseless intruder, life-consuming foe;
Proud o'er my fall, and in my sorrow, blest,
Destroyer of a love thou ne'er canst know --
And life with love -- O leave me -- spare me now --
On that blessed moment while I fondly dwell,
When kind some pitying Genii heard my vow
And as my trembling fingers touched the spell,
Propitious to my wish bestowed the skill
That gave, -- O more than wealth, or fame could give;
My Henry gave, by Fate's resistless will,
And snatched from death and made it bliss to live,
To live for him, and at Love's sanctioned shrine
Pledge my devoted heart, and clasp that treasure mine.
