CISMA DE INGLATERRA: STANZA 2, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: My heart, its wishes trembling to unfold
Last Line: I burned my wings, and settled on the rose.'


My heart, its wishes trembling to unfold,
Thus round the Rose and Taper hovering came,
And Passion's slave, Distrust, in ashes cold,
Smothered awhile, but could not quench the flame,
Till Love, that grows by disappointment bold,
And Opportunity, had conquered Shame,
And like the Bee and Moth, in act to close,
I burned my wings, and settled on the Rose.'
