A BOOK OF AIRS: SONG 33, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Aye me! That love should natures works accuse
Last Line: A grief, o death! To live and love in vain.
Subject(s): Love Unrequited

AYE me! that love should Nature's work accuse!
Where cruel Laura still her beauty views,
River, or cloudy jet, or crystal bright,
Are all but servants of her self-delight.

Yet her deformed thoughts she cannot see;
And that's the cause she is so stern to me.
Virtue and duty can no favour gain:
A grief, O death! to live and love in vain.
